I now practice art with my two children ages 2 and 4. We are cutting, pasting, sculpting, painting and drawing on everything around us (except the furniture).

Time to get back to business?
Creating these tiny wall batiks. These are all 4 x 4 “ and are mounted onto wood tiles. Right now my work table top is full and I’m waxing away. I’m particularily busy creating these guys I call “dirtybits”. I draw them in hot wax, then paint them with dye.
I began studying art at the University of Regina, Saskatchewan where I was guided by amazingly generous and talented instructors. When the chance to live and work in Japan presented itself I jumped on the opportunity and left my studies in Regina, temporarily. I taught English in Yokohama and Tokyo for just over a year. It was life-changing. I returned to the U of R for one more year of growth and learning, only to seize yet another opportunity to move to Vancouver, BC. After transferring to Emily Carr School of Art and Design I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, majoring in Visual Art.
I have worked in Clay, Metal, Drawing, Sculpture, Mixed media- book drawings, projected images, fabric-sculpture and printmaking. Since graduating, drawing, painting and printmaking have been the main focus of my practice.
