Interests and Personality

BiographyI'm a self taught artist from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains of Alberta who has followed her heart to the pineywoods of East Texas. An artistic career in pastels, pen and ink,charcoal and watercolor has ranged from juried shows and competitions to gallery exhibitions and international sales....spanning over twenty years. My works are in now in public and private galleries throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Step inside a mystical world of Fairies, Mermaids and Angels that are sure to inspire or have a peek at my critters....pets and animals that we all love and adore! For a change of pace I will also take you back to my roots with visions of days gone by or inspirational landscapes. My first love in art was portraits of First Nation peoples and Cowboys of the old west.....which is a part of my history. Now, you might find some Southern Americana mixed in with our culture today. I hope you enjoy seeing the world of today and yesteryear......through my eyes!
MusicI love music! Blues, Rock, Country, Celtic, Alternative, Bluegrass...whatever soothes my soul.
FilmsMaster and Commander, Cold Mountain, Vanity Fair and Pride and Prejudice are among my absolute favorites but I'm a movie addict and will watch most anything.
BooksThe Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. I enjoy celtic themed stories of a historical nature.
HeroesRegular, everyday people that inspire me!

Beautiful Work.Congratulations! Cheers&Success


Wonderful works,retrobaby. I will be asking some gallery owners here in the UK to look at your work as well. look forward to seeing more.Antnich


Your work conveys your love of art. I was inspired by the watery softness of you backgrounds. I am currently working on an abstract landscape in acrylic that has a "similar" feel to your backgrounds. I have come to a point where I have begun to add hard detail. I'm stopped. Wanting to do more and concerned I may diminish the quality of what is already there. The wonderful thing is I can see where adding color at earlier stages will provide the effect I am craving. The point of all of this is that I acknowledge you for having given me another away to see. Thanks & keep creating.


You've managed to capture and release a part of your mystery through your art.


Liked all the paintings; good work. Dubo
