I studied art for two years at the then Vancouver School of Art in my early twenties. At that time Vancouver was a hot bed of modern trends. I originally wanted to be a painter but I didn’t continue. I later studied desktop publishing and made posters, brochures and newsletters for community groups. I also studied photography at night school at Langara College.
I exhibited digital prints of kaleidoscopic images, derived from paintings and photographs, at the Bean Scene in January of 2011 and at Vertigo Gallery. I have participated in juried shows at Vertigo Gallery and contribute to its yearly Almost Famous show.
I am currently an exhibiting member of the Lumby Arts Coop and have participated in a painting club called Lumby Artist Connections for a number of years. Receiving instruction in acrylic and watercolor from Lou Hammond and Robin LeDrew I feel drawn to abstract painting, learning how to negotiate my style of semi-realistic representation with emphasis on the calligraphic, expressive way of putting my marks on paper, the effect of light and the harmony of color.
I often use computer software to enhance prints taken from both original paintings and photos. I also enjoy experimenting with marbling and poured paintings using acrylics.
