I took several landscape watercolour classes to get me out the house so I could meet some more local painters - do a little socializing. The works I have loaded recently are inspired by the energy of working in that great environment with my fellow artists.

I am motivated by ingenuity, inspiration and energy so I naturally feel very strong connections with creativity and nature. It is reflected in the colors I use and subject matter that inspires me.
I am a Canadian artist, born in beautiful White Rock, BC a town in the Pacific Northwest. I now reside in Burnaby, a suburb of Metro Vancouver. Always having had an interest in visual expression and nature, something encouraged in me from a very young age by my father, not a day goes by that I don't create or think about doing something creative. I have extensive formal training in both fine art and commercial art including a diploma in Graphic and Communication Arts. I love to make things and really enjoy painting with watercolors. I have been selling my artwork in galleries and craft stores in the Pacific Northwest for more than sixteen years. My paintings can be found in corporate and private collections including HSBC and the Canadian Bar Association.
