I began painting in the late fall of 1995. The first few years with oil, adding watercolor in 2003. I tried Pottery in 2006, for a while, but it was not for me. In 2007 I added Acrylics. I like to try new things and I am passionate about Manitoba Prairie Skies. In May 2008, at the Interlake Juried Art Show, my work "Storms Coming" placed 1st in the Oil division, and also earned 2nd place in Best of Show.

Landscapes, Flowers, Gardens, Pet Portraits, Northern Lights and more recently Abstracts, are some of my favorite things to paint. The subjects I choose helps to decide the medium I work in. My work titled "Morning Mist"was selected for the Wellington West Capitol Award during the 2001 Red River Exhibition Juried Art Show
My paintings are in private collections across Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa, and more recently Iceland. I was accepted into the Manitoba Society
of Artists in 2008. I am currently a member of the Gimli Art Club, the Winnipeg Local Colour Art Group and the Selkirk Community Art Centre. My work is on permanent display in the Gimli Art Club Gallery by the harbor, and can also be seen at The Manitoba Society of Artists.
