Hi there, and thanks for visiting my portfolio. Feel free to connect with me to learn more about my artwork and my creative process. 

At this stage in my journey as a painter, I paint from the heart. I try to capture and celebrate the beauty of the North Saugeen (Bruce) Peninsula where I reside - it's as simple as that. For me, living up here, close to forests, the bay, the big sky, spacious landscapes, and wildlife, is magical. Life up here whispers about what we have, what we need, and what we love. The sense of freedom that I receive from the water, wind, sky, birds, fox and bears, entrains big questions about who we are and where we're going. At this stage in my journey as a painter, I'm often overwhelmed by and I struggle to articulate these things visually, but I'm trying! 

My career has taken interesting turns, starting in film and TV production in Montreal and Toronto, then transitioning to the environmental sector.  I hold a PhD in Planning from the University of Waterloo and a Bachelor of Fine Arts/Film Production from Concordia University .
