I live in the beautiful city of Barrie, Ontario with my husband and 2 beautiful children. I studied the “Fundamentals of Art” and graphic design at Georgian College, Barrie, and worked in the graphics/print industry for 17 years. Nowadays, I paint in my home studio – mostly commissioned pieces, and share my passion for art with others through my business: “Host a Private Painting Party at Home”.
I have always had a passion for drawing and painting from as young as I can remember. I doodle and scribble on any surface available to me. Many a t-shirt and jeans have little smudges of paint embedded into their fibers, and forever remind me that any day, is a good day to paint.
My paintings are whimsical, show my sense of humour, and are usually created using vibrant “happy colours”. They are fun-loving and meant to lift your spirits and bring a smile to your face. My love of teaching art is fulfilled; whether I am volunteering at my kids’ school to teach a children’s art class, or if I am instructing a group of adults at a fun Private Painting Party, I get to share my passion with others. I love what I do, and I hope it shows in my work.
