Born in Penticton BC in 1947, I have always enjoyed the arts. Without a lot of opportunity to paint, except for grade nine with Bill Barlee, my life took a different direction towards music and drama. I got married to a wonderful man, Stan, in 1968. After having two children, Sheri and Chris, my focus remained at home. Once the children left home I was able to revisit my old passion of painting. I now paint with a small number of ladies regularly and I am an active member of the FCA. (Federation of Canadian Artists). I, periodically, teach high school art as a guest artist and enjoy working with mixed media as well as different services.
