Life was full of twins and a 2 year old. We lived on the shores of Lake Manitoba at Delta isolated from city life.
Watercolour paints entered my life and I struggled to find time for me with 3 children under 3. A move to Winnipeg and another life unfolded where the kids began school and funds were not as tight. I registered for painting classes at Winnipeg Art Gallery and began my journey into being an artist. After joining Charleswood Art Club I found a niche to teach and work with fellow arts in our journey.
Workshops and a move to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario leads me to my present life and an artistic community I quite thrive on. Teaching at the Senior Centre and mentoring my Passionate Painter friends gives joy in sharing. Life is good and I endeavour to create for me which in turn can give you joy as well.
