.When I was nine my family moved from the prairies of Saskatchewan through the Rocky Mountains to Abbotsford B.C. Our new home in the Fraser Valley was set against the rugged splendour of Mount. Baker, with its ever-changing atmospheric moods. In my teens I spent many summers in Banff, Alberta, where the dramatic skies, rocky mountains, wooded slopes, and icy glaciers dipping into the depths of emerald lakes, never failed to evoke strong feelings of peace and harmony. It is this spiritual communion that I strive to depict in my paintings. I love to paint Bridges, Water, Skies and Mountains. Bridges are by far my favorite. My paintings are hanging not only in Canada but in many countries such as Ireland, Germany, New Zealand, China as well as USA I am proud to say I am co -owner of Owen Sound's newest Art Gallery "Bridges Art Gallery" In Clarence N.Y. on Sept. 2008 during the grand opening of the Sculpture Garden of Alexander the Great at the Museum Of European Art, I was honored to be inducted Lady Eleanor into the "Order of Alexander the Great".
