I work predominantly in Acrylics but have begun to explore some Mixed Media choices. I love to paint the things I find “on my doorstep” be it mountain vistas, wetlands, small creatures, and anything inbetween. My work is very realism based. I have only been painting since the fall of 2007 and my first exhibit was in 2008. I produce cards and prints of my work and have been chosen to participate in the Kootenay Art Calendar since its inception in 2012. I am primarily self taught but have done a few workshops and follow a number of artists on Instagram. I have also worked with children to both give them skills to create the things they want or to help them explore different styles often with a focus on Canadian art.
