I have wanted to draw and paint since I could hold a pencil. Along the way I trained and worked as a graphic designer, art director and fine artist, taking classes and workshops whenever and wherever I could. An exciting project has been painting our spectacular National Parks (I was fortunate enough to have a solo exhibit on the 100th anniversary of the parks). Throughout the pandemic shutdown a Southern Colours group kept active with various challenges and took the opportunity to work on old paintings, a learning experience. I hope to keep traveling, painting and learning and wish everyone could see these wonderful places!
