I am currently a resident of Pierrefonds. I have studied with several well-known artists and have exhibited my paintings locally.

I paint in oils and acrylics, and my main focus is to portray the beauty or nostalgia that I see, and always to present my own positive perception of life. I enjoy painting landscapes, animals, dancers and portraits.

As a teenager I wanted to be an artist. At the time, it was considered to be a poor career choice. So instead I studied finance and management to be an Insurance and Mutual Fund Broker. As a hobby, I learned and then taught choreographed ballroom for 25 years.

Since I retired, I've been able to more fully realize my artistic passion.
