I am a visual artist, a painter primarily and just finished BFA at Mount Allison University, in Sackville, New Brunswick. I returned to University to finish my degree that I started back in 1972 at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. I did not finish my last year at NSCAD because my husband passed away at 26. We had only been married four months. As a mature student who returned at the age of 56, I have much to learn and much to contribute as well. I have always been one to follow my passions, especially living a creative life and so now finally at the age of 59 I will be graduating in four days, which is a dream fulfilled. Read Less

Presently I am working on a series of small egg tempera paintings. I have completed ten. This work is based of imagery from Clarissa Pinkola Estes book, "Women That Run With the Wolves", which explores the deep spiritual meanings of women's spirituality and the Life/Death/ Life cycle of nature. This book was life changing for me and vital to my creative life at present.

I intend to continue on with my series of oil paintings of the Canadian Horse which will culminate in the production of a handmade bound book, printed on letter press depicting high quality digital photos of these paintings with a personal story about each equine portraiture. Read Less
