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.
