Most of my life has been spent within the working ranch community of Southern Alberta. My husband and I live and work on the family ranch near Chain Lakes where I grew up. The people and animals of this colourful world have offered us a constant source of inspiration and limitless opportunity for artistic expression. Many of my subjects are depictions of events and individuals I have known personally. Horses have played a huge part in my life and I never tire of sculpting them in all their majesty.

The wild animals with which we share our ranch home are equally inspirational. I have also been very privileged to travel to some wonderful places and the wild creatures that I have seen there have challenged me to speak their story, of survival, of conservation and the courageous people who commit to them and also simply to share the beauty of wild things.

Recently, I have partnered with a good friend and created a long-time dream of a studio/gallery. We have a lovely space in Longview, Alberta where I have a working studio and a place to showcase my art.
