Painting, Painting, Landscape, Figure, Mixed Media, Watercolour
I grew up in Tatamagouche, NS until I left for school in 1986 and spent 30+ years in Ontario raising my family.
I was often in the home of my grandparents in Nova Scotia, both of whom were very artistic, and I grew to love art and creativity from them.
I dabbled in lots of different art forms over the years, but it has been in the last couple of years that I have found my love of painting in watercolor. This was my grandmother’s favorite medium, and we spent many hours reviewing books and discussing innovative ideas and paintings on which we were working. Unfortunately, my grandmother passed in June of 2019 and did not get to see me truly embrace watercolor. I have since gone on to take several classes and workshops to improve my skill.
I love painting animals, landscapes, portraits and occasionally still life. I am fascinated by color and how incredibly colorful nature is. I am currently a member of the Truro Art Society, The Fraser (Northumberland Arts Council), Gallery 215, The Attic Painters as well as VANS (Visual Arts Nova Scotia).
