THE JOY OF PAINTING
Growing up in Northern B.C. surrounded by majestic mountains, peaceful lakes and powerful rivers inspired me to paint and capture the moment. I have always believed that 'life is an adventure or nothing at all". This is reflected in my painting with vivid colour, boldness and freedom. I progress through this world of painting as I live my life, with enthusiasm and passion while definitely having fun. A good day of painting involves feeling my brush dance with "wildness" on my canvas. I am prepared to follow my dreams in this "adventure" of being alive.
