(Acrylic painting, Artists & fine Art Artisans, Water colour painting)
I have been painting in watercolour since 1997, when I was inspired by the different flowers in my garden, to capture their fleeting beauty and enjoy them during the winter. I am a self-taught artist, learning and exploring watercolour and other media through workshops and books.
 
I am drawn to the challenge of capturing light on flowers, objects, and in the landscape. The way it gives life to a subject gives great joy. Still life paintings are very satisfying to do, as the painting seems to transform every-day objects into very special ones.
 
I am an Associate member of the Federation of Canadian Artists as well as a member of the West Kootenay Chapter of the FCA, and as a weaver, I am a emmber of the Selkirk Weavers and Spinners Guild. Yes, there is always conflict as to whether I should be painting or weaving. Right now, painting is winning the battle.
 
This summer I am participating in Castlegar's 2011 Summer Art Walk. My paintings can be seen at Bagels and Brew, 108 - 1983 Columbia Ave., open Mon. to Sat., from 6:30 am to 9 pm, and Sun from 9 am to 6 pm. I am also participating in the Columbia Basin Culture Tour on August 13 and 14, from 10 am to 5 pm.
