The Story Behind the Painting
Storytelling artist simply means that I love the story behind the view or photo that inspired me to paint it. I love that I can tell a little something about each of my paintings, and especially offer an opportunity for my viewer to remember and relive a memory. The photos that inspire my work come from friends and family. I love seeing their faces as they tell me about their journey. I become so inspired by their story, I suddenly feel an urge to paint it.
I work with both acrylic and oils. My primary focus recently has been in developing my work through oils. The depth of colour with oil paint enables me to breathe life into my painting. The brilliant seasons of Canada are my muse. I hope that others can feel the awe of our great country as I see it.

The first snowfall has arrived and I am immediately drawn to the beauty and magic of a fresh fallen snowy landscape. Keeping this series soft and harmonic was my theme as I feel our world needs this right now, almost like one of my mottos: “less is more”…Read More
Duchesnay Falls – My good friend and I recently drove up to North Bay to visit an old friend and spend the night. It’s funny, I drive through North Nay a few times a year to go up to Temagami, but never have I stopped at Duchesnay Falls. So beautiful, light rain was falling and we were unable to hike to the top, so I sneaked into the forested terrain and captured a glimpse of the roaring falls through the trees. . . Read More
Roadstop to the Mountains -I am really enjoying the play of color these days. This was a very special memory as our family headed to Kimberley BC for my niece’s wedding. Some of us flew directly there, but my sisters and I drove from Calgary, with many photo stops along the way.. . . Read More
