As an artist, I seek to authentically express my emotions and ‘Joie de Vivre’ in each work. I wait with anticipation for the moment when my awareness of the physical act of art making recedes to be taken over by the energy of the creative process. It is a mystery that defies explanation and remains delightfully magical.

I have extensive experience as an art instructor teaching all ages in a variety of medium both here in Australia and back in my hometown of Toronto, Canada.

I find such joy in inspiring others to discover their inner artist. The one that comes out to play with no expectations; that insists on being curious and thrives on adventure. That artist resides in all of us and simply needs the time and space to make an appearance. What are you waiting for?
