Born and raised in Ottawa, Canada, I now reside in Cottonwood, AZ.
I studied at The American Academy of Art in Chicago, IL., and taught etching at the Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Arts in Chicago, IL., for 2 l/2 years.
After moving to Cottonwood in 1999, and taking a workshop with Scott Jennings, my passion for Plein Air Painting really started. My work is being represented by the Sedona Art Center and Oak Creek Gallery at Hillside. I am also a member of OPA and the Arizona Plein Air Painters Society..
In Plein Air Painting I strive to capture the beauty that Nature so generously provides. This is where I get my inspiration.
