Painting is my passion…..
I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world around me and love interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by books I’ve read, including famous authors and poets from the past…
Sometimes I am moved to write short stories and poems to better illustrate my point of view, but in fact the works can stand entirely on their own…
Over the years, I have taught art at the college level and privately in the studio, and I have been a frequent contributor to Canada’s premier design and art magazines.
My television appearances include several popular decorating shows, my work has been featured in numerous publications, and can also be found in many private homes around the city.
As you view my work, I hope that you will find something that resonates with you…

Some will see death in these familiar seed heads, but I see life…they are brown, dry, crisp to the touch, but they stand tall in the garden defying Winter’s rage, while all around them bow in defeat….
I remember the white, the pink, the yellow blaze of colour not so long ago flaunted in pride high above the garden bed….
In these sere days, in these hours of melancholy wheeling flights, they give us reason for hope…Janis Zroback
“From a thousand hills, bird flights have vanished;
on ten thousand paths, human traces wiped out:
Lone boat, an old man in straw cape and hat,
fishing alone in the cold river snow"…Liu Tsung-Yuan
