Creating art through a wide variety of media has become an integral part of my life. A paint brush or pencil placed within reach cannot remain static. I must reach out, experiment and create, always challenging myself to push the boundaries. Along with painting and drawing in every media I enjoy working in clay, carving, and printmaking. Photography enables me to create my own references and inspirations.
Teaching art in a high school for over 30 years gave me the opportunity to hone my skills in a wide variety of media and never stop learning. The more experience I gain, the more I want to challenge myself with my own creative ideas. The workshops that have been offered by the Markham Group of Artists have enabled me to meet like minded artists and inspired me to try new things. I am still exploring and working towards developing my own unique voice.
