A cabin on Parker Island B.C, in the Southern Gulf Islands, off the coast of Vancouver, is a new and inspiring setting for me. With three grandchildren on nearby Galiano Island and an airy porch on the bluff by the sea in which to paint, I am feeling very excited about the light, the ocean, the fir and arbutus groves, the eagles and even the rocks. I am currently working on a series of small and large paintings on Parker Island, one of which is pictured above.
Having passed many summertime hours in another small porch studio at my beloved haven on Otter Lake, Ontario, I am happy to share some of the paintings I have produced there in the COTTAGE ART section of my portfolio, all evocative of life in the heart of Ontario Cottage Country. Lake, sky, boats, ever changing light, a water loving yellow lab and a chipmunk crazy springer spaniel puppy all continue to provide endless inspiration.
I have always had a passion for portraiture. In the PORTRAITS section of my portfolio you will find both commissioned works and also some I have done of friends and family, even a self portrait which I am told makes me look miserable!
OTHER WORK includes paintings that just don't fit into my other categories... French cafes, pastries, a turkey and some far flung landscapes to name a few....
I hope you enjoy my website and I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions.
