I am native of Grand Falls, NB and now live in Island View, just outside of Fredericton.

Painting has been a passion of mine since 1996. To better my understanding of art, I read everything I can pertaining to art and make a conscious effort to be aware of my surroundings. Taking my own photographs is an important part of what I do, and I always keep in mind that they might be useful for that perfect painting.

I have studied art with Marlene Kay at 'Studio l'Envoie' in Grand Falls, NB. With Marlene, I explored charcoal, pastel, watercolor, pencil, and oil art mediums.

I continue to participate in workshops whenever possible and on occasion do plein air painting. When I paint, time does not exist, it is like floating on a cloud. I am highly inspired by other artists and the beauty of nature.

I am a member of FSA and work on the Publicity Committee.
