I studied fine and graphic arts at St. Lawrence College in Kingston, Ontario. Following my education, in 1975, I was employed by Stephens/McBain in Toronto as a junior artist 1975 -1980. In 1980, I was hired by Wallis Studios in the prestigious Yorkville area of Toronto to work as a designer and illustrator. I continued to work there after the birth of my son in ‘87, but found that long hours of overtime and demands of the advertising industry didn’t blend well with my life as a mother and I made a decision to work from home to allow more time with my son. During this time I rediscovered my passion for watercolours and within a short time, I started offering classes and workshops in my home studio and garden in Mississauga. For the past 20 years, I have taught classes and workshops at Visual Arts Mississauga, Sheridan College, Oakville and for various art groups throughout the GTA and southwestern Ontario.
Recently my husband and I have moved to the Grand Bend area on the shores of Lake Huron. Our home backs onto an Oak Savannah forest, and The Pinery Provincial Park. I am a member of Sunset Arts, a cooperative gallery in Grand Bend.
I hope to offer classes in my new home studio when Covid goes away.
