I have loved art since childhood and experimented with many different mediums in high school such as; painting, drawing, sculpture, pottery and fabric arts. After high school, I began a 3 year program in Illustration Arts at Sheridan College in Brampton, Ontario. After completing my first year, I moved with my family to Langley, British Columbia.
Soon after I arrived in BC, I got married and started a family, so I pursued my art on the side. After my children had grown, I met internationally acclaimed artist, Donna Zhang. Donna would become my teacher and taught me how to paint in oil. Donna taught me to paint a variety of subject matter, with an emphasis on colour and composition with a strong foundation on technical skills. After many years, we continue to keep in touch and paint together when she is not busy working on her own paintings or travelling.
I continue to take art workshops to improve my knowledge and skills while working on my paintings. I am inspired to paint nature, people and wildlife.
I also enjoy exploring new techniques. I love to visit art museums and galleries. Art is a big part of my personal journey.
