I live in Port Colborne in a beautiful home with two cats. I am retired from work as various as BBC TV to river sampling in Syria and Lebanon to Canada Post.
I started watercolour painting at a convent school in Malawi, East Africa, and moved onto drawing at a Grammar School in Kent, England. After happy years as my two children grew and thrived, I joined the Port Colborne Art Club in 2015. Here I started acrylics painting and recently I have enjoyed exploring graphite drawing with a view to trying pastels.
I really do enjoy learning about art history and restoration work. I have no profound philosophy about art except to avoid pretentious art critics. I have sold some paintings but I am definitely a beginner and an amateur.
I recently joined the Visual Artists of Welland who very kindly invited me into their Gallery at Seaway Mall where some of my paintings and drawings are currently displayed.
