ABOUT

“The expert in anything was once a beginner”! This quote seems to epitomize anything that I’m involved with or am a part of. I have always had a passion for creativity, whether it was art or crafts or a new way of doing something . . . anything . . . even business related. Life is here to be lived . . . to be challenged . . . to be explored.

Art is a part of my genetics. My cousins, my aunts, my parents, my siblings, and my children and now even my grandchildren. It seems that everyone in my extended family had a calling to dabble in the arts – music, art, crafts – it touched them all. I am humble in my ‘gift’ and thankful that I can carry on the family traditions.

As an active member of a local art club, most of my pieces are exhibited, and for sale at local art and craft shows around the interior of British Columbia, Canada. As well, a number of my pieces are done by request as commissioned work. I hope you enjoy your tour around my website and if you would like to give me feedback or would like to request information about my work, be sure to send me a message on my contact page.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my website.
