Art Class

 

When I create, I go to another place; I am seeking calm serenity.  I escape to my studio and listen to soft inspiring music.  I get lost in the process of creating.  I experience inner joy.

 

I work with images using light, reflection and color to explore the world around me.  Many of my pieces are inspired by nature.  I take pleasure capturing a moment and presenting it in a new way. I enjoy creating realistic, semi-realistic and abstract pieces; using color, texture and shape to tell a story. 

 

My pieces reflect subjects from my environment, my life. I have a huge appreciation of nature and love hiking, kayaking doing yoga and gardening. 

 

I have retired from my day job and I am spending more time creating and teaching.  I offer a variety of workshops at my studio and at local wineries.   Workshops include learning to get the best effects with alcohol inks, creating a mixed media collage and paint pouring. 

 

I am a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and the Carr's Landing Art Group. 

 

I feel truly blessed to live in the Okanagan which gives me the inspiration to create.

 

I show my work at the Lake Country Art Gallery, Art Walk and the Carr’s Landing Art Tour.  My work is in collections throughout Canada.
