About me

Location Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
Introduction In 2006, I suffered a serious spinal injury, and then had surgery to help try and repair the damage that had been done. It was a long road to recovery, and I was left with permanent damage to some of my nerves and muscles, making it impossible to return to work. I didn't have a clue what I was going to do after that, and my future seemed rather uncertain. That was until my family started to encourage me to return to my love of drawing and painting.Being an artist was always a dream of mine, but was always on the back burner, something I'd do when when I retired! I have now been showing and selling my work since 2008, and I've had a wonderful reaction to it, and an amazing time creating it! It is an absolutely wonderful feeling to have someone look at a piece that I have created and love it enough to want to take it home! My work is mostly in acrylics, because I love the dynamics and versatility of them. I have also experimented in mixed media/encaustic collage pieces and these applications can have some wonderful results! I have a small studio in our one hundred year old farmhouse, where I live with my family and my beautiful German Shepherd.
Interests Art, Art and art!!! I do also love gardening, classical music, and I am a huge lover of animals. I also love to drive/walk around looking for interesting inspiration for future paintings. I usually make small sketches of subjects as well I take photos to bring back to my studio for reference.
