I was born and raised in Huntsville, Ontario and moved to Ottawa as a young adult. Married for more than 40 years now; 3 sons, 3 daughter-in-laws, 5 grandsons and 3 granddaughters!

As a young girl I remember receiving a paint-by-number for Christmas one year and spent almost every free moment working at it until it was completed...and of course that was on the top of the list the following year. It wasn't until some 5 decades later that I began taking some tole painting classes at night school. My real excitement for painting began the first time I tried to paint from a photo of our two grandsons ... I was so thrilled to see it actually looked like them (well, from behind...no faces involved)...I haven't really stopped working at it since. Two of the wonderful teachers I have had are Cheryl Poulin of Dunrobin, Ontario and Kathy Harker-Fiander of Ottawa, Ontario. With Cheryl I took a few acrylic classes and one mixed media class. With Kathy I took watercolour classes one morning a week for fall,winter and spring for about 5 years. My dream is to be able to paint realistic portraits, so that is something I try to practice more of.

I also love taking photos..... and carry my camera with me almost everywhere I go. And spend a lot of time at the back door watching the birds that come to our feeders.

I am a member of Arteast and the Ottawa Art Association.
