I make abstract art because it all depends on my imagination. Every day I puzzle over colour, shapes, lines, ideas and textures until I have created something surprisingly cool that makes me smile.
And all my abstractions are about something, something vital to me….music, dancing, nature, bees, justice, equity or colour.
I am so happy to be a member of Propeller Gallery, and my work has also been exhibited by Canadian Fine Arts Gallery, XC Art Restoration Inc, Love Art Fair, Jordan Art Gallery, the Queen West Art Crawl and Pentimento Gallery.
I am originally from Winnipeg, from a family of artisans and naturalists, and in earlier iterations of my life have been a community developer, union organizer & negotiator, mediator and adult educator. Also, mother and partner, consultant with not-for-profit organizations, feminist, dancer and friend.
Having completed my M.Ed., U of Toronto, I have been a professional artist for 15 years, and my paintings are in 80+ private collections.
The emotions, reflected in all my work, are chiefly gratitude, constant gladness for my great good fortune of being an artist, and a woman, in Canada. My future lies in reading the world and telling my story.
