In addition to painting, I have worked as a social worker for 27 years. Each year for the past 8 years, I have taken a mini sabbatical from work and family to participate in intensive workshops progressively farther and farther afield. I have had the opportunity to work with some of my favourite contemporary watercolour artists from around the world: Elizabeth Kincaid, Birgit O’Connor, Tom Lynch, Paul Jackson and Soon Y. Warren. These workshops have taken place in beautiful settings: Mendocino California, Cape Cod Massachusetts, Paris and Southern France, throughout Italy including Venice and last but not least Bonnie Scotland!.
I now work primarily in watercolour which facilitates my exploration of colour, composition, value and form. I have been given tremendous opportunities to instruct, to have my Art featured in books and on film, and to travel throughout North America, Tunisia and Europe. I want to thank my family and friends for their support and encouragement to pursue my dreams.
What an incredible journey!
