Approach / Inspiration
While I love exploring different mediums such as oil, acrylics and pen/ink, I always find myself drawn back to watercolour for its luminosity. I find inspiration everywhere, from nature to people and everyday life. I simply paint what speaks to me. With a love of flowers and the opportunity to learn under Margaret Walsh Best, it is impossible not to be inspired by her passion for all things botanical.
For as long as I can remember I have loved to draw and paint, always regretting that I did not pursue a fine arts degree. While raising a family and working full time, I would try to find time to paint but life would often get in the way. When the opportunities presented themselves, I took classes at MUN Extension Services and Anna Templeton Center as well as from many talented local artists. I currently study with Gerald Vaandering, Kathleen Knowling and Margaret Walsh Best, continuing to enjoy the journey and see where it leads.
