My paintings are displayed in solo and group exhibitions and are represented in the City of Ottawa public art collection and in private collections nationally and internationally. Click my CV for details.
Along side of working in the studio the other part of my creative journey is about teaching fine arts, creativity mentoring and coaching.
I have had a rewarding time designing and leading workshops since 1978, through the City of Ottawa, The Ottawa School of Art, Algonquin College (Creative Arts program), Halliburton Summer School of the Arts (Expressive Arts Program), Mississippi Mills School of the Arts and in the greater Ottawa community with Artswell, an arts and health charity organization for 10 years.
Currently, I teach a variety of workshops in expressive drawing and abstract painting for small groups from my studio situated in the heart of Almonte Ontario. Occasionally, I’m part of unique collaborative workshops designed for students for example Glass and Drawing with Jennifer Kelly, Music and Painting with Jennifer Noxon, and Seasonal Yoga and Drawing retreats with Amelia Ah You.
I also offer 1:1 coaching/mentoring. Contact me if you would like to customize a class or art party.
It’s a joy to help people connect deeply through art and creativity. It is important to me to provide my students with an uplifting, inspiring experience in a friendly bright environment where they can discover and explore techniques, materials and share ideas.
Gift Certificates for workshops are available.
All workshops are located at 15 Bridge Street in Almonte
