I live in a pastoral country setting;a small hobby farm surrounded by many beloved (and spoiled )creatures.I am a working artist influenced by my rural backdrop and creating diligently and enthusiastically out of my haunted historical studio in Owen Sound Ontario. I am drawn to our collective histories and an imaginary world of those who walked before us. I am a collector of ephemera, memories and rich discards ..Certainly treasures to be refashioned into new art.My background is editorial illustration and I am a visual storyteller. Rescuer of stray memories and strands of past lives. I believe in the transformational and healing qualities of art. It should always be joyful and full of many layers.
