I am an artist who is attracted by colours and patterns found in nature. I love to paint rows of grapevines and olive trees. I am not interested in expressing my innermost feelings on canvas but rather to share the joy of colour which I see in every bouquet of flowers.
I began my formal art training at Ecole de Beaux Arts in Montreal and continued in Vancouver, receiving a B.Ed. with a double major in painting and ceramics. I have learned a lot about art during workshops in France, Greece and Italy. However, I have found that most of my learning comes from painting experiences from real life observation and painting what I see.
Recently I have enjoyed painting en plein air around Vancouver and on Bowen Island. Last year I had an amazing experience painting at SkopArt on the island of Skopelos, Greece. I recently spent two wonderful weeks painting in Tuscany at the Verrocchio Centro d’Arte.
