Artist’s Statement:


Making art for me is an essential part of who I am and how I interact in the world. At an early age I recognized the importance of artistic expression. Whether through painting, drawing, writing or even music, creativity helped to define who I was and still am today. The process of making art is as personal as it is mysterious.

I work with colour, value and form in various mediums. Reoccurring images, shapes and symbols emerge often in my work. The origin of this personal visual language is a mystery. However, it is essential to trust the process. This in turn helps in the unfolding of new ideas. An unexpected is simply an opportunity for the next experience.

I have worked as an exhibiting artist, educator, children’s book writer/ illustrator and community art advocate. As a board member on the North Vancouver Public Art Committee as well as chairing the Funds for the Arts on the North Shore, I believe that art plays an important part in a healthy community.
