I was born in the UK, emigrating to Saskatchewan in 1967. I worked in Saskatchewan as an artist and educator from the mid 1980's until 2011. I studied in London, UK and Regina Saskatchewan and my graduate studies were focussed on Arts Education at the University of Regina. In 2001, I studied for one intense semester at the American Aegean Center for Fine Arts in Italy and Greece.
I have lived on Gabriola island since 2012, where I has a studio and continues to make work.
MEDIA: Painting: oils; watercolour; gouache; egg tempera
Drawing: a variety of traditional and non traditional media including wheat paste paper collage.
CONTENT AND SUBJECT MATTER: Narrative; autobiography; family history and place, through memory, imagination and observation. I often work at more than one body of work concurrently. Recently I am concerned with my immediate environment - painting and drawing forest landscapes. I am concerned with rapid urbanization and deforestation that I see on my island home Out of this work has emerged a series of botanical paintings and drawings of plant species I observe on local trails and in ditches, some unique to our West coast landscape.
