I am a local Acrylic-Encaustic-Mixed Media Artist living in Simcoe Ontario. I attended Sheridan College And graduated from the Classical Animation and Fine Arts Program. While raising a family, I worked for many years at a local Garden Centre-Nursery and became a full time floral designer. After a serious spinal injury and surgery in 2006 ,I was unable to return to this type of physical work, so after a long recovery, and with great encouragement from my Husband and family I returned to my passion for art. I have been painting and showing my work at various shows and galleries since 2008, and love to teach art as well. I’m inspired very much by old buildings, everyday items, and natural settings, and love bringing them to life in my paintings.
