About the Artist:

I'm a self taught artist and have learned the art of coloured pencil and watercolour through reading books, watching videos, and lots of hours practicing the techniques I have acquired. Inspired by my parents, who are both artists, I have painted since an early age. The first art contest I entered was in grade five, receiving a trophy for the "World's Greatest Artist" I was hooked from that point on. It was years later that I started to think of my love of art as a business opportunity. I started drawing professionally in 1990, selling pastel portraits of children. It was during that time I discovered watercolours and coloured pencil. I fell in love with these mediums ans was able to achieve the vibrant colours and details I longed to paint. I have been teaching since 2004 in my home studio as well as workshops for various art clubs. I am inspired continually by my students and all that nature has to offer.
