I discovered my love for painting in 2009 thanks to my friend and neighbour Marilee who encouraged me to try watercolour lessons with the late Greg Zelinsky who was a well loved and talented art teacher. With Greg’s encouragement I have completed over 140 paintings and have sold some original and commissioned works.
My favorite subjects are faces, especially those that tell a story. The inspiration for faces came from a charming old couple I chanced to meet sitting on a bench at a spectacular lookout on the Amalfi Coast. Theirs were the first two faces I ever painted. I was selected as the “Featured Local Artist” at the 55 plus Centre 2019 Spring Into Art Exhibit. Through painting I’ve met some very warm and supportive people. I am born and raised and still live in Thunder Bay with my husband Art and spend most of my days in my studio.
I would like to thank CAHEP and The Painted Turtle Art Shop for creating the Virtual Art Fair giving myself and others the opportunity to show our work. What a great idea.
