I was introduced to art making in my primary school days by Canadian Artist, Edna McPhail in Dawson Creek, BC, and I’ve continued to create throughout my entire life. I consider myself to be a “Self-taught” Artist, although my formal training includes Emily Carr College of Art and Design in Vancouver, BC, as well as, Douglas College in Surrey, BC.
I’ve worked in many media over the years including graphite, oil, watercolour, pastel, acrylic, and coloured pencil, depicting many subjects from landscapes and seascapes to still lives and florals, as well as abstracts.
I have been an Active Member of The Federation of Canadian Artists for many years. My work has been featured in solo and group shows in Vancouver, BC, White Rock, BC, Surrey,BC, Prince Rupert, BC, Williams Lake, BC and Quesnel, BC. My coloured pencil work was displayed in articles that appeared in the Artist’s Magazine as well as Drawing Magazine.
I have lived in many parts of British Columbia including the Fraser Valley, North Coast, Peace region and the Interior of the province. Currently, my home is in Quesnel, BC.
My work can be found in private and corporate collections in Canada, USA, Germany & Australia.
