I can not remember a time in my life when I didn't want to paint.
I was born in Fox Valley Saskatchewan, but have lived most of my life on the West Coast. We moved to British Columbia when I was 5 years old. My parents immediately enrolled me in the Vancouver school of art.
I've been a nature lover all my life. Throughout school I excelled in art, and every moment of free time I spent sketching people and animals and wandering in the woods with my dog.
I was married at a very young age and spent the next years raising a family and working. Unfortunately due to circumstances I was not able to begin painting until I had serious health problems and major surgery. During my recuperation period I was finally able to realize my passion and pursue my dream of being an artist.
I began basically self taught but later started at Jean'ne Brooks Oil Painting classes. I painted portraits and did a lot of native Indian works. Marion Scott Gallery in Vancouver sold many of these, she also registered me as a Canadian artist. A client of hers, the top art buyer from Paris, France bought many of them and said he would buy anything that I painted sight unseen.
