Leaving behind the world of non-profit finance and administration, I turned to painting to find a new expression of myself.

The Bruce Peninsula has been a special part of my life for over 30 years and now I divide my time between the rocky shorelines of Georgian Bay and the white sand beaches of northern Florida.

In both places I have been privileged to study with some of the very best – learning, experimenting and working in various media, they have taught me, inspired me and, by believing in me, have led me to trust my own way.

In both places I am constantly touched by the mystery and magnificence of God’s creation, which never fails to fill me with awe.  I am strengthened by the water; I am grounded on the shore; I find comfort in the trees.

My art is grounded in the belief that in the midst of our lives we must find the magic that makes our souls soar. . . it is this that I hope to convey in my art.
