“Tibi ipsi esto fidelis – to thine own self be true". This challenging lifetime mantra impacts my images, creating complexity and authenticity. Photography is the food on which I feast; it nurtures my creative soul. It is my raison d"etre. Genetically I've been blessed with artistic genes. The greatest influence upon my photography was my time spent in The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. As a young girl, I attended a boarding school which had mandatory walks even during freezing-cold blizzards! Many afternoons were spent absorbing the works of Rembrandt,The Impressionists,Turner,Van Gogh,The Group of Seven and Emily Carr. Powerful composition drew the viewer magnetically into the painting; the subtleties or dramatic lighting created mood be it stormy or mystical. Turner and Van Gogh's passionate use of vivid colours still infuse and inspire me. "Bodacious Burano" is born out of that fire. I become emerged, elated and energized in the joy and power of primary colours.
