Since before I can remember I have always drawn,
colored or doodled. I could sit for hours and get lost in
whatever it was I was creating.
After graduating from Islands Consolidated, a small school located on Long Island, NS, I went on to college to obtain a certificate in Graphic Art & Design. I was intrigued by the new mediums I was being introduced to. So many wonderful things I had yet to explore.
I retired my paints over 20 years ago, but have found the need to once
again be creative. Inspired by growing up on the Islands, I recall many
memories that transport me to another time, a peaceful place.
When painting I am in my happy place. I still love to explore new mediums
and styles. I have learned you are never too old to try new things!
I hope you enjoy the results of my passion and desire to create. Please follow along with me through this journey and see where we end up!
