• Bio
    I am an artist and art educator living in British Columbia’s beautiful Okanagan Valley.  I grew up on B.C.s west coast, graduated with honours from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor of Fine Arts.  I received a scholarship to attend the International School of Fine Art at The Banff Centre and then went on to do my art teacher training at the University of Calgary.

    My Art – I believe in portraying the simple beauty around us, from coastal landscapes to interior vineyards, from wooden fish boats to heritage building.  I love all mediums of art. The expressive line work of drawing, the flow and blending of watercolour and the thick texture of oil paint.  Regardless of the medium, I love creating a great composition and with virtually every piece I try to capture a mood through beautiful lighting.
