I have always been interested in art, especially in depicting organic forms, both human and inanimate. I took all the art courses I could while in high school and in university. I completed the Fine Arts Diploma at the Grande Prairie Regional College in 1987.
After moving to Grande Prairie, I worked with the Grande Prairie art group that met weekly at the library for several years. When I moved to Whitecourt, I began working with the Society of Whitecourt Arts Council (SWAC) group
While in Whitecourt, I taught a couple of watercolor courses at my cabin studio on our property. I also taught a series of drawing lessons at ARTickles Gallery and another series at Pat Hardy School, primarily for the teachers there. I have been working mainly in pastel for the past six years.
Since moving to Edmonton in the spring of 2013, I have been attending the drop-in life drawing classes at Harcourt House as well as completing a series of pastel.
