Hi, Thanks for stopping by.
I am creative mother of three. I recently moved to the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia from Toronto. I come from a family of artists and odd folk. As a teenager I studied classical art and painted reproductions of old masters. I learned Ancient Greek and Italian. I attended the University of Toronto where I studied philosophy and art history. I spent extended periods in Italy learning Italian and soaking up whatever I could. I worked in advertising until I had my first child and then gratefully became a devoted stay at home mother. I have returned to painting in the past few years and get so much joy from painting with all mediums. I love the fluidity of watercolour. The texture and smell of oil paint is irreplaceable. I am loving acrylic gouache. Whatever I am painting there is always colour. colour. colour. I repudiate negativity and stay in the realm of beauty and optimism.
