I have always been a painter. I have taken a self directed approach thus far in my career; taking courses in the many places I involve myself in community art events. Alongside my personal art work, I spend time encouraging and teaching others to explore art in its many mediums.
There are many familiar themes that run through my work; nature, iconic female deities, fairytales, ancient text, and hidden symbols. Folklore and symbolism of many cultures, all brought together in my paintings to tell a story. I am a painter; acrylic and watercolour are my main mediums. Music is also an important genre of art I am involved in. I am a singer songwriter, singing traditional and folk music.
20 years ago I was introduced to African Drumming. Since then, I was part of a woman's drumming group in Calgary AB called the Djem-Babes! When I moved to Eastend 11 years ago, I brought my drums with me! And have offered drum circle facilitation throughout small towns in Saskatchewan.
My participation in the arts community in Eastend has included the Eastend Arts Council, creating A.G.E.S. - Artisan Guild of Eastend and Surrounding Areas. Sask Culture Days and exhibitions in Western Canada and most recently through a travelling show curate by OSAC (Organization of Sask Arts Councils).
If you are interested in art workshops, paint and create nights, or drum circles please contact me!
