Artist Statement
As an Artist I have become totally indulged in urban environments and the surrounding nature from Newfoundland to Northern Ontario to Vancouver Island B. C. I’m extremely passionate about my art and use my tolls to dream the dreams, see the visions, sketch intricate detailed plans, and take the time to feel and view every aspect of my creation. My mediums include personal writings and drawing, partial personal photo transfers, silk screenings accompany with various mediums process onto Japanese Washi Paper, Milk Carton and Tea Bag Paper and Mylar Paper including Aluminum or Various Canvases to create a Zen like Viewing.
Artist Bio
“My Collective Works of Art” are a reflection of the good fortune of growing up in the idyllic settings in the Ottawa Valley, Ontario, Vancouver Island B.C., Halifax N.S., and Washington D.C. Because of an environmentally nurturing upbringing I am gifted with a deep appreciation and knowledge of love and understanding for the intrinsic natural of beauty of nature, landscapes and all forms of plant life. As I was born into a family of exceptional female artists, who recognized my particular artistic interests and qualities, I was encouraged to travel around the world so that I could observe different cultures and landscapes. After one of my many major trips throughout Asia. I started to study the art of Chinese Brush Painting. After many years of rigorous education I eventually earned a highly prestigious “Professional Studio Stamp”.
Today, I participate in continued self-directed art studies. I use my artistic skills to combine Western Art Techniques with Chinese Brush Painting to create a vision of depth emphasizing colours and various textures to give the viewer a sense of serenity through a peaceful Zen Style.
