“My journey with art began with my mother who painted and considered gardening to be an art form. In high school, I spent a lot of time at the National Gallery in Ottawa looking at Tom Thomson paintings. After studying Art History for a year at Carleton University in Ottawa I went on to a summer job at the Museum of the North in Yellowknife. I then decided to pursue visual arts and went on to complete a BFA at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon. Further studies and related work included setting up a screen printing workshop in La Loche Saskatchewan, photography in Halifax, Deer Island, New Brunswick and at Ohio State University. While painting, and living in Los Angeles I received a Canada Council grant. I have had solo exhibitions in Toronto, Vancouver and Victoria. Since residing in Prince George for the last twenty-two years I have continued to paint and consider gardening to be an art form.”
