I have worked in the arts for over 40 years. The last 15 years have been as an instructor, curator, textile artist and painter. My studies were Fine Arts at University of Western Ontario.
WHAT I'VE DONE
My past experience includes exhibitions in Pakistan, USA, Japan, Mexico and Canada.
I am a past recipient of an Ontario Art Council Grant and a Canada Council Grant, for which I am very grateful
WHAT I DO
When I am not painting, I am curating art exhibits, writing or instructing art workshops
Gestural expression and the nature of the medium itself holds the most importance in my abstract paintings. I work to reveal intrinsic connections between external reality and what resides within the imagination. My work has been shown nationally and internationally, and most recently in Islamabad Pakistan, Mexico and Kyoto Japan, Canada and USA. I am a past recipient of both a Canada Council grant and an Ontario Arts Council grant for my work in the arts.
