I live in Sidney, Vancouver Island, BC Canada.

Watercolors has become the main focus of my art as I love to see the colors mingle and sparkle on a plain piece of paper. I find I usually work on Arches 300 lb. Cold Press but a Collage is usually done on 140 lb.

Lately I have been dabbling in mixed media and really enjoying the stretch.

I like to paint objects that evoke a memory of a quieter time, a time of rememberance.

I teach watercolors and am very active in the arts community in my area.

Life gets in the way

Unfortunately this has been a year of heart problems, husband’s poor health and I just haven’t been painting very much. / However, it is a new year! now all I need is some inspiration !!

Hot summer days

I find it hard to get in the painting mood when it is so beautiful outside with all those flowers beckoning me :) / I have some of my art and gift pieces at a Summer Artisans sale and show until mid August. / I have been looking at the blue hydrangea out in bloom and I think that will be my next project.

I find I am not bouncing back from surgery like I had hoped so not much art happening … hopefully I’ll get my vim and vigor back soon!

Studio Tour over...

It was a very busy weekend and I was happy to hear such positive comments about my new acrylic/watercolor paintings. / The weather cooperated which always helps. I don’t think I had as many through this year but those that came bought and went home happy. / I got a few commissions out of it..which is always exciting.
