I fell in love with art at a young age and have been creating vibrant acrylic and mixed media paintings for over 20 years. It brings me joy and a quiet stillness to move paint around, taking a rich yet stylized, semi-abstract approach. Water, beach landscapes, birds and quiet spaces inspire me. I play with colour, light and texture... a lot. 

An Ontario Certified Teacher, I am an elementary teacher and have also taught in several galleries and museums. I offer quality art instruction in a learning environment that inspires creative flow and well-being. 

Hugs from my kids, fresh coffee, turquoise, beaches, cozy sweaters, Sharpie markers, reading on a dock, colourful yarn, chocolate brownies… a few of the things I love.

My work is for sale, and commissions are accepted. Tell me what you think is beautiful or say hello.
