I was very lucky to study fine arts in the late sixties at the Art Centre at Central Technical School Toronto. I graduated with a love for painting, printmaking and weaving. I later studied painting at the Kunsthochschule Weissensee in Berlin Germany where I discovered the vibrant works of the German Expressionists as well as the powerful printmaking of artists such as Kathe Kollwitz and Wassily Kandinsky. The texture inherent in printmaking is something I have integrated into my painting.
I lived in my hometown, Toronto for most of my life. Then three years ago, Larry and I were able to leave the city behind and to pursue our art and life in the country.
We now work and play in beautiful Bear River, Nova Scotia at Green Willow Studio. I paint with oils, acrylic and watercolour – whatever inspires me. I also weave, do a bit of sewing and explore the surprises of monoprinting.
