About the Artist
I exhibit locally and internationally with works in various private and public collections throughout Europe, Japan, Australia, USA and Canada.  I am a graduate of the Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design, Langara College (Vancouver) and the Schaeffer School of Design (San Francisco). During the last 20 years I have been teaching painting and drawing in Continuing Studies programs at the University of British Columbia, Capilano College, Vancouver Academy of Art, Langara College, as well as in my studio. At Capilano College I taught for 9 years, a highly effective drawing course called Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.  My studio courses for intermediate and advanced students in watercolour and drawing have been ongoing since 1986. In the last 13 years I developed and taught intensive unique Painting & Creativity travel workshops in BC and Europe including Corsica, France and Tuscany and Umbria, Italy.
