The Story Behind the Painting
Storytelling artist simply means that I love the story behind the view or photo that inspired me to paint it. I love that I can tell a little something about each of my paintings, and especially offer an opportunity for my viewer to remember and relive a memory. The photos that inspire my work come from friends and family. I love seeing their faces as they tell me about their journey. I become so inspired by their story, I suddenly feel an urge to paint it.
I work with both acrylic and oils. My primary focus recently has been in developing my work through oils. The depth of color with oil paint enables me to breathe life into my painting. The brilliant seasons of Canada are my muse. I hope that others can feel the awe of our great country as I see it.
Landscapes of mighty rivers, forested plains, Tundra, Arctic Coast and Arctic Sea, edges of Canadian Shield.
Capturing landscapes that connect us to nature.
I love that I can tell the story behind my paintings
Crispy Reds of Autumn – This painting was simply inspired by my surroundings in Ottawa and the Gatineau Park Region. We get such vibrant reds in the Gatineaus during Autumn season, and I love birches, The contrast of reds and white birches are such good timing as we prepare for the festivities of the Holidays and winter. . .

Frosty Blues – I love single white pines, my favorite tree. None of them look alike and although I changed the color palette from the other Frosty Blues, I put the blues in the trees to give a three-dimensional look to the painting on top of the burnt oranges and yellows. Still a cold day, but a happy painting and dramatic. . . Read More
Autumn in the Sky – What a special weekend this was, October 2019 Thanksgiving weekend, we decided to go camping and whoever out of our five kids could make it, would meet us there. It was stunning in fall colors, cold and brisk. We had a campfire going all day and evening, laughter, games, and hikes. Family time is most important to me, and with the kids in Kingston Toronto. . . Read More
Jewel of the Rockies – I went out to my sisters this past holiday between Christmas and New Years with my husband. I love Western Canada, a part of me feels we should have relocated out there years ago when the kids were young. There’s a feeling that you never tire of when driving through the Rockies. . .
