While studying Interior Design at the U of Minnesota and OSU, I always enjoyed Art History classes and became drawn to the Impressionist style – loving their warm, bright colours, textures, and majestic gestures!  Van Gogh, Cezanne, & Monet are some of my favourite artists of that era.

I’ve had the privilege to take classes/workshops from Liz Walker, encaustic artists Kelly Williams, Sue Jensen, Linda Robertson, and the many talented encaustic artists from the Essence of Mulranny.

Always inspired by Mother Nature and all the wonder that surrounds us, I’m currently fascinated with birch trees and adding my own mark to each painting.  My work is full or colour & a variety of textures!

Joining VGA has enriched my life in many ways and I look forward to supporting and participating in the Gallery for many years to come!

Thank you for your support!
