My earliest critique was when I was three. I had finger-painted my mother's Indian carpet with baby oil and coal dust. Why I ever painted again is a mystery. My work has evolved from ceramic sculpture, pioneer rug hooking, basketry and crochet. There were many years I painted with oils and a pallet knife. A brief encounter with the late Jack Reid turned me on to the magic and challenge of watercolours. I also had a one-week workshop with Carl Brenders. I became one of the founding directors of The Canadian Wildflower Society, which helped me to become an irrepressible conservationist. I have penned and illustrated botanically correct award-winning books. Being pixalated as a child, I just had to tuck in fairies to explain just how fragile the environment is. I have held a few awesome positions such as Vice-President of the Scugog Council for the Arts and Vice-President of The Scugog Public Art Acquisition's Board. I helped to create the Scugog Spring Studio Tour. I was chair of a Multicultural Organization for five years. I have contributed to Port Perry’s Mayor’s Annual fundraising gala for the arts. I created many years of brochure covers for Mason House Gardens. I exhibited at Canada Blooms for ten years. All this helped to show my work in such wonderful places as The Royal Horticultural Exhibition, London, UK., where I was invited to the Miriam Rothschild estate to see her work with reintroducing native species to the roadsides, The Roger Tory Peterson Inst., New York, The McMichael Gallery and many, many other amazing places.’ My call is deep my call is strong, it will not let me sleep too long’. I cannot stop. I am one lucky and grateful gal.
