I'm a Canadian Artist living in Calgary, Alberta. I try to spend at least part of every day painting and I will be sharing my journey on this blog. My paintings are contemporary and impressionistic in style. I hope you enjoy them.

Teaching over the last several years has been both rewarding and inspirational. My decision was largely due to time constraints and not feeling like I had adequate time to explore possibilities in my own work.
I taught my final workshop to a great group of artists last week and although I am excited for what the future holds it is always a bit scary when our careers take a new direction.
But what will that look like? Will I have the discipline to continue to grow as an artist? There is so much to learn and having started this artistic journey rather late in life, I feel a sense of urgency.
To address this I have again enrolled in several workshops, studying with Terri Miura, Max Ginsberg and Ben Lustenhouwer this summer. I am also taking a week long sculpting class - something else I've always wanted to do.
I hope you will continue to check in with me as I share my new skills with you. I hope to update my blog more often in the coming year.
