In 2012 I felt the need to dust off my palette and
rekindle my creative energy. A friend encouraged me to visit an accomplished
artist in Aurora and I began the process at Sherman J. Studio under the
mentorship of Judy Sherman.
I now paint regularly in oils, primarily landscapes of
areas that inspire me with their beauty and, in some cases, remoteness. To my
delight, I won an Honourable Mention Award for “Abandoned”, oil on canvas, at the
Aurora Art Show. I have also sold some of my paintings. From the Upper Ottawa
Valley to Haliburton and Canada’s East Coast, I have spent many hours totally
absorbed in the creative process of painting these scenes hoping to share the
beauty with others.
My husband Tony and I moved to Aurora in 1972 and raised
our family here. For the past 33 years, we have operated our business in
Aurora. Our children, Adam and Karen, grew up here and have stayed in the area
to work and start their own business. I work at our office still, but manage to
take time out to paint and spend time wth our granddaughters Abigail, 7 and
Tahlia, “5 and ¾’s”, both budding artists!
