“Creative expression is an essential part of a full and happy life”
I continue to explore artistic expression through my paintings and pottery. Attending two painting workshops in 2019 has helped me become a more confident representational landscape artist. Creating more of my pottery bowls meets the increasing demand for my work.
I attended a three-day painting workshop with Susan Woolgar last June and a five-day Plein Air workshop located in Alert Bay last September with Doug Swinton. Both experiences stretched my creative abilities further and inspired me to trust my artist abilities. Playing with shadow and light, using bolder strokes, working with composition and vivid colours are evident in my more recent paintings while I continue to create functional pottery (food, oven, freezer, and dishwasher safe).
