While at Ozu Cultural Centre, in Italy in April 2013, I was inspired by the ancient earth, the wonderful companionship, the sense of being totally free to create in a huge studio anytime I wanted to! I found myself returning to the theme of THE ELEMENTS: Earth, Fire, Air, Water as I have often painted nature. In Italy, I found a place inside that was clearer and brighter than ever before. The results of this are inside the book!
I began drawing at age 3 and have not stopped! I have 8 years of Education; the bulk of this at Emily Carr University of Art & Design, Vancouver, B.C. Canada. Graduated in1988 from full time program with a major in Interdisciplinary studies. I love to paint. What else can I say! I have been blessed with 70 solo, 80 group and 23 international group exhibitions. 7 Awards and my art works are held in public and private collections around the world!
