“Life to me is creating, whether it be painting, drawing, sculpting, sewing, crafting or gardening. I have been painting since I was a young child and consider myself to be primarily a self-taught artist. I was introduced to the commercial art world by my high school art teacher. As a working mother of five sons I spent many years in commercial art, designing and painting what others asked me to do. I painted murals as well as advertising and seasonal paintings.
Now that I am retired I have the privilege to explore and to learn different techniques and mediums and to paint for the sheer joy of it. I prefer to work in watercolour and pencil.
I love to paint the beautiful innocence and preciousness of a newborn baby. Also to capture the joy, the excitement and the wonder of a child and to bring favourite Bible scriptures to life through my painting or drawing.”
