Approach / Inspiration

I have loved to draw and paint since I was a young child. I especially loved to do detailed work, no matter the subject matter. Most recently I have become interested in botanical art and how I can interpret in scratchboard. I was introduced to scratchboard when I was in high school and loved it immediately.

Biography

I grew up in Toronto and currently live in Mount Pearl, NL. I received a B.A. in Fine Art from the University of Guelph. I also have a B.Ed. and a Diploma in Graphic Design. I moved to teach art in Newfoundland schools. I have also taught adults and young children. I have since retired from teaching and now concentrating on my own art.
