I paint, sculpt and sing, often at the same time. Over a number of years, I’ve curated a multi-disciplined education uniquely my own. A lifetime of travel has led me to study with several masters of sculpture and paint. Each artistic discipline has informed the other.
As a senior member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (SFCA), my work has been part of several juried, local, national, and international shows. I have been awarded first place in three sculpture exhibits as well as had extensive recognition for my paintings.
Sharing my knowledge by coaching other artists brings my creative passion full circle. For as long as I can remember I have been dedicated to the education and development of artists. I’ve worked with hundreds of artists of every level, helping to develop their potential and skill sets so they can confidently move forward with the work they aspire to.
In my own practice, my focus has always been on people. An individual’s unique adaptability and vulnerability are endlessly intriguing to me. The wordless communication that happens with the tilt of a head or the crook of a finger, is the visual poetry I am forever wanting to capture. The emotions that come from our involuntary gestures are a perpetual source of interest and curiosity.
My wish is that my work invokes imagery that is merely the start of a dialogue. I hope that, for the observer, the story continues beyond the boundaries of the piece.
Creativity is immense… and each day I strive to explore as much as possible.
