My mother was an artist and my father an art dealer.
Our home was a comforting gallery of masterpieces by Rodin, Moore, Motherwell, Noland, Smith, Moore, Chagall, Matisse, Pollock, Picasso and others. I was a lonely child and these works of art made an impression on me. Art school came early for me and painting became a parctice. During my early exploration of dance and music, and later, while raising children, I painted to illustrate the world I knew and the mysterious.
My art has been exhibited in Toronto, Washington DC, New York and Florida. The bookworks, Little Raccoon and the Light in the Woods, and Little Chick's Moonlight Spin were followed by international performance tours to schools and community learning centres. I am currently exhibiting in group shows: Arts on Main Gallery in Picton, Ontario and as part of an artist collective PS4, in association with Toronto School of Art.
My painting practice is an exploration of the unconscious
and it’s effect on the narrative in relationship to people, places and things.
Spontaneous life events evolve into imaginative environments,
rich with vibrant colours in acrylic and oil.
Dreams and Love, Humanity and Nature, Mythology and Spirituality are common themes.
Currently I am exploring surrendering and the uplifting of the spirit.
