I am a self taught artist who was hooked on art from the first time I picked up a crayon and created images from my imagination.
Having had an aptitude for both science and art, I had to choose which would serve me best as a career and which as a hobby. Art became my hobby. Over the years I restarted my artistic endeavours many times because of conflicting priorities.
I have taken various classes and workshops that while expanding my technical skills in various media, never led me to discover my true inner artist. I retired early to Gabriola Island on British Columbia's beautiful Pacific coast and am working on uncovering my illusive inner artist.
Currently, I am focusing on watercolour and pastel media and am working on moving to a more representational style with freer abstract elements. While I am interested in a variety of subjects, I am most inspired by images that tell a story typically involving people or animals.
My greatest reward is bringing a smile to the face of someone looking at my art.
