ABOUT THE ARTIST
My husband, Wayne, and I moved to Vancouver Island in 2015. I have a home studio which I just love escaping to. Creativity keeps me up at night - wanting to go back to my work in progress and dabble paint on the canvas.
I'm a self-taught artist and have been painting for over 30 years in oils, acrylics, and watercolour. I love to challenge myself and try different subject matters and mediums, although my preference is oil paints.
It is fun and exhilarating to see an image come to life. I love to create fine art that captures the essence of the moment by focusing on the effects of light and shadows on my subjects. Some pieces are inspired by places I've visited on Vancouver Island as well as images of family, friends and their furry babies. In addition, there are lovely pieces painted that are inspired from photographs taken, and with permission from, professional photographers Paul Zedic and Jeannie Gane Photography.
Painting is like planning an exhilarating vacation. The journey is so exciting.
