Following my heart

I am a graduate of BealArt and Fanshawe Design. I also taught digital design at Fanshawe for 10 years and have taught from my studio from time to time. My  focus now is on my art and specifically portraiture.

I am very blessed to be able to follow my heart and play and learn. I have been painting since 2002 and have quite a collection of paintings that range from landscape and still life to abstract. Furthermore, I enjoy going back and forth from one style to another and keeping things fresh.

I will be focusing this fall and winter on portraiture and experimenting with various techniques. My goal is to become a portrait artist.

I invite you to view my galleries and contact me if you have a question. I continue to create commissioned pieces of art on request.
