I have been painting watercolours for 32 years and teaching in the medium for over 26 years. I started by taking evening courses via community education programs and followed this with a few courses at the Ottawa School of Art. However, I consider myself to be basically self taught through reading and continuously challenging myself to grow. I love the medium and sharing it with others. I have been instructing some of the same students since I started teaching in Ottawa in 1989. Several of them have been showing and selling their work regularly. I began to do traditional stained glass work about 21 years ago. Over time my work has evolved to include mosaic stained glass.

I worked as a RN for 25 years while raising three children and now am a grandmother of six. My husband and I winter in Ottawa but spend most of the year at our beautiful cottage on Malcolm Lake in Ardoch, North Frontenac Township.
