I was born on the west coast of
Canada and growing up, I fell in
love with the work of Emily Carr.
I relate to her love of our natural
west coast landscapes.
After a hiatus working full time in
the community service field as an
Royal Canadian Mounted Police
officer and growing a family,
I rediscovered my love of painting
after buying a home on the
Sunshine Coast's Gambier Island, with my husband Bill and our four children.
The land, water and community inspire me and my art.
