I was born and lived in the country just outside of the small community of Eganville, ON. This gave me plenty of opportunities to observe the subjects I love to paint. I enjoyed painting in my teens. I later got married and raised three children. When they were older I was eager to start painting again. To explore my options I joined a folk art painting class and from there graduated to fine art. I enjoyed painting on wood and still use it today. I have participated in many Art shows throughout Ontario and was a member of The Renfrew Art Guild until my husband and I moved to North Bay. I am currently a member of Art on Main were I have many of my pieces on display.
