Artist Biography
Earning a BFA from the U. of a. was the beginning of my Art Education. Since that time, I have taken many courses in drawing, painting, printmaking, batik and computer. One summer, I learned welding to create small sculptural forms. Every exposure to a new medium or other artists becomes inspiration to explore in new directions.
I have had the pleasure to teach art to many different groups ranging from children's Saturday morning classes to Adult watercolour and drawing classes. More recently, I taught the Art programs at a large Edmonton High School and had the experience of being Department Head of Fine Arts, International Languages and Career and Technology Studies at the same time. Each day was a new adventure.
Artist Statement
Whenever I vist a new area, I need to become familiar with the area through its forests and parks. I am comfortable wandering through the trees, studying the effects of light and environmental conditions. The images, sounds and tactile experiences make an impression. Sometimes, I sketch but mostly I use all of my senses in the shapes, negative spaces, textures, colours, sounds and smells. This winter, I have started painting these observations in acrylic beginning with realism and gradually simplifying the forms and playing with colour and composition to create strong compositions.
