Latex house paint on raw canvas



Price: $1140.00

Born in Toronto and raised in what was rural Ontario my aspirations as a creative person dawned as soon as my eyes opened wide to the space around me in my new home on the farm.

At the age of 10 water colours began to flow. Inspiration came from the birds of every size and colour that filled my eyes. My painterly pursuits continued through high school where I was given the opportunity to fill a wall in the cafeteria with a new-found love of painting on a large scale. I have also had training in print making and found object sculpture.

My education, besides over 40 years of diligence in my pursuit, consists of a Visual Art Certificate from Centennial College, 2 years in York University’s Fine Art Studio Program, and an Architectural Technologist Certificate from Ryerson University. For 25 years I had been working in the studio of Artists 25, a collective committed to figurative work with model sessions 4 times a week, in which I participated for 6 years. Since then I had rented the space for my own projects. My work has now found a new home in Workman Arts Incubator Studios. I also maintain a home studio for smaller works.

My work has been exhibited in several Toronto galleries, where I had honed my skills in curating, as well New York City and Beijing, with work in public and private collections worldwide.
