I have loved drawing since childhood and completed a Graphic Arts diploma in college. Since then my career directed me into the academic world of neuropsychology yet I still took time to dabble in art. I became a member of the ‘Gallery Painting Group’, an outdoor painting group, in 2012 and I haven’t looked back since. As an active environmentalist, painting ‘plein air’ complements my appreciation of nature. I also enjoy painting still life and folk art. I am fortunate to be one of the four ‘SHADY Artists’ who are energetic, colourful and have a great variety of artistic styles. I am also an associate member of the ‘Portside Gallery’ in Port Stanley. For two summers I spent a week on the Toronto Islands painting with a group of very creative and fun loving artists. I’m grateful to have received juror’s choice awards in 2012, 2014 and 2019 with the Gallery Painting Group. My ‘Springbank in Winter’ painting was chosen for the cover of the Advisory Committee on the Environment (City of London) brochure. My works have been exhibited in group shows at the annual Gallery Painting Group shows, the Westland Gallery, the Portside Gallery, the Braywick Bistro, the London Arts Council, Panache Gallery, Paint Ontario, TAP (the ARTS Project), Revive Restaurant, Aeolian Hall and the Fringe Gallery.


I have loved art all my life and feel so fortunate that in my retirement , I can dive in and paint!  My absolute favourite thing to do is to paint outside (plein air) whether it be in London , Toronto Island or Florida in the winter …. the beauty of what I see intrigues me so much! . I have been passionate about my art for a dozen years in fact, I loose myself in the process of getting it just right on the canvas!  My favourite thing to paint is a landscape especially if water is involved or flowers or trees.
I paint quickly, mostly in acrylics which I love.  They are so vibrant, so forgiving and so easy to use!  I have shown my work in many galleries and art shows.  I am part of The Shady Artist Group in London and paint twice a week with The Gallery Painting Group in London as well as with 3 groups in Florida.  It is my sincere pleasure to show my art once more at The Aeolian Hall.




I am a London, Ontario artist who grew up in Quebec City where I attended Ecole des Beaux Arts. Because of early initiation and inheriting the family art gene, painting has become a necessity, a passion and a source of peace. Joining the Gallery Painting Group a few years ago led me to discover the joy of painting on location while connecting closely with nature. All the elements of plein air, from hot muggy weather with bugs to a warm summer breeze in the morning sunlight, create a mood that is the foundation of most of my work. My primary goals are simplicity and serenity giving me a mysterious feeling of creating magic. My work consists mainly of London and area landscapes in oil, completed on location. I also have used acrylic, watercolour and pastels. Always eager to learn new techniques and approaches by different instructors, I continue to attend workshops and classes sponsored by various art groups and schools.
