I’ve always admired artwork and loved to be creative, but I have never had any formal art training. A few years ago I decided I wanted to try my hand at painting so I bought the supplies and attempted watercolour first. I really enjoyed this challenging medium but thought I’d like to experiment with acrylic as well. Soon after I started with acrylic paint and canvases, I joined the Brant Visual Artists Guild and started coming out to paint with all the  “seasoned” artists at Glenhyrst. I was very intimidated at first but I’ve really enjoyed learning from the other talented artists, gradually gaining more confidence in my own ability.

Now I am passionate about painting! Everywhere I look I see a potential painting! I am working mainly with acrylics but still enjoy going back to watercolours at times. It has been wonderful to be able to combine my passion for travel with my love for painting as I re-create my memories on canvas!
