I am an artist with a focus on watercolour and live in Vancouver British Columbia in the Pacific Northwest of Canada. As a child my parents always encouraged me in my art. I still recall as a child in Grade 1 depicting my impression of the pipe organ from a class trip to a cathedral. When my family lived in France in the 50’s, I took lessons from a French woman artist in oils. I have lived in Ottawa, France, Camp Borden, Kingston, Toronto, Austin Texas and Vancouver. Since my retirement as a professor from the School of Nursing at U.B.C., I have had more time to pursue my art interests. I am enjoying the challenge immensely.
My subject matter focuses on nature and representing that subject in expressive ways. Watercolour is an excellent medium for reflecting the wonders and mysteries of our world. It allows for the freedom of colours to mix and mingle to create wonderful scenarios that can be both exhilarating and relaxing.
