To create, to express myself uniquely, to speak, but not necessarily with words…these are powerful desires that have resided in me for as long as I can remember. What emerged from that longing was stained glass work, jewelry, poetry, creative writing and even a lush garden. Not surprisingly, I became a graphic artist by trade and have enjoyed my work for over 25 years. What I still craved however, was a creative outlet that was more expressive and less structured.
Approximately six years ago, I ventured into mixed media and have never looked back. Finally I had discovered the freedom to express thought, emotion and events in a way that I had not yet found in other art forms. Using rich acrylics and raw Belgian linen as my base, I incorporate objects, metal, and words to create works that are textured and raw.
Formal studies have included training and workshops in Ottawa and Montreal, as well as through the Women’s Studio Workshop in New York.
