I was born in London, Ontario, Canada. I work in a representational style using traditional oils on canvas. I paint commissions from photo references.

My work is exhibited regularly in Galleries, juried shows and various other venues, primarily in Ontario Canada. I have had work in Galleries in France, The USA and Denmark. Curating an Exhibition to represent Canada with the work of seven artists, including herself, that went to The Netherlands in 2009, was quite the honour.

Having had 40 solo exhibitions and participated in over 400 group shows, has resulted in numerous awards including Best in Shows, several public choice and juried awards.  The County of Oxford commissioned a painting for a gift to Taiwan.
Numerous Ontario Arts Council Exhibition Grants have been received.

Paintings have gone to the United States, England, Ireland, the Netherlands, Poland, Australia, Japan and Viet Nam.

I  teach and lecture. Murals for the Town of Ingersoll and assisting with theatre sets and wall murals has been an interesting change from working on canvas. I also judge and act as a juror for photography and art competitions.

My work is in numerous corporate, private and permanent collections, some of which include The Government of Ontario, The Woodstock Art Gallery and The Woodstock Hospital.

I was elected into the Ontario Society of Artists (OSA) in 2009, and am currently a director. I am a member of  Oxford Creative Connections and The Central Ontario Art Assoc. as well as The Woodstock Art Gallery.

My current focus is painting close ups of nature with rocks and water a favourite theme.
