Artist's Statement

Born and raised in Ottawa, I have had a life-long love of art.  My mentor, a professional artist and Mother of a dear friend, coached and encouraged me for many years to explore various forms of art media.  I have experimented with pottery and sculpture but always return to my first love - painting.

I found my true calling painting acrylic abstracts.  The layering and glazing techniques have inspired and taken me to a whole new and exciting direction.  I adore the bright, saturated colours that allow me to create strong, bold and dramatic works.

When you look at my paintings, I hope you feel the same joy I experienced when creating them.
