Born and raised in Banff National Park, I became enthralled with nature at a young age.  I attended the Banff Center as a teenager and went to the Kootenay School of Art in Nelson, BC.  after high school.  After working full time and raising three daughters, I now have for my art.   I like to do realistic landscapes in watercolours, acrylics and also do pen and ink drawings.  Painting outdoors (plein air) is one of my favourite pastimes.
