About the Artist
I produce art that explains how I feel about my environment. This will include persons, places, happenings, and beauty within my surroundings. It will at times show attitudes from within the culture of place, and how the view from within that environment may be affected by the outside world. The process of my art will begin with my voice and complete with exhibiting my final product giving voice to others to comment. I work in paint, using acrylics and watercolour, draw with charcoal and pen, and sculpt in clay and at times in bronze. I am now trying my hand in the graphic arts and harnessing the computer, but for me, I will always favour working with my hands in a tactile medium.
The artist has lived mostly in the Maritimes near to water and great scenery. I continued my art work while raising two children with my husband. Preparing for solo exhibitions and group shows is my passion and fulfills my artistic drive. Many years have been spent sharing with adults and children in the school system, teaching my craft. I no longer teach but will share and help individuals with learning and preparing portfolios for higher education.
I now share my art through rally maps opening my studio to tourists. Just finishing an exhibition of clay sculpture, I am now working on a painting exhibition.
Never one not to have an idea or just contemplating a long time idea, my exhibition plans are far ahead of my actual working them. The process of an exhibition begins with a proposal to show and then producing to an estimated opening time with the number of works I wish to present. Then I get to work preparing those pieces as well as my presentation for the exhibit. In between these exhibitions, I am developing or researching an idea or doing individual pieces of art that stand alone.
