I just love taming wildflowers committing them to paper thus helping others see what is beneath their feet. My work is still evolving which now includes animal heads, land and seascapes.
I have been painting professionally for over forty years. Starting out in Montreal where I studied ceramic sculpture, life art and oil painting. I experimented, at first, with heavy impasto palette knife work which I loved. I met Jack Reid and became a watercolour devotee. I also spent an exciting week with Carl Brenders learning and honing my skills.
In the eighties I became a founding director of the Canadian Wildflower Society. My focus changed to botanicals and native plants.
My being a mirror-dyslexic it was a huge commitment for me to write, illustrate and self-publish three books. There were times when unannounced fairies would pop into my work. These fairies tell the story of Emily and her deep connection to the native wildflowers. The second introduces her to native poisonous plants and pays respect for the lost tribes of North America. Book three she becomes aware of the Spirits of the snow and has a brief introduction to the Inuit culture. I have been fortunate enough for them to win gold and bronze awards with Moonbeam Children’s book awards USA.
My works have been shown at The Royal Botanical Society London, UK, The Roger Tory Peter Institute, USA, The McMichael Gallery, The Royal Botanical Gardens, Hamilton, The Toronto Botanical Gardens, Kent Farndale Gallery, John B Aird Gallery, Buckhorn, L’etoile des Artistes The Roycroft Museum and many other prestigious shows and galleries
