Description

I have always had fun with my art, especially finding new ways to create. As a child, my best friend and I spent every Saturday at the College of Art trying everything. This led to my regular entries in the YMCA Hobby Show and my ultimate devastation when ‘the Y’ withdrew its sponsorship.

I didn’t start painting until the 1960s when I lived in New Glasgow, first lessons in pastels and then oil paints. Returning to Halifax, I discovered Jean Edmonds Hancock who became my mentor. From her I learned a lot about composition as oils, acrylics and water-colours became my media. Workshops with a wide variety of teachers followed, adding to my enjoyment of painting with other painters.

My work frequently reflects my love of the ocean, boats and sea-side villages. Recently I have been having fun exploring collage. I have painted with Brushwork Artists and Crossroad Artists, showing my work with them. As well, my paintings can be seen in the Contemporary Arts Society juried shows; a variety of local shows; Kermesse; Arts Sales and rentals at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and at a local doctor’s office.
