Here's our little gang at the Western art show at the Calgary Stampede. Alan and Rick McDiarmid shared a booth, and Diane and I went along as support staff. It was 10 long days and a unique experience to say the least. Best parts for me were getting to know the other artists and viewing some the of incredible diversity of artistic talent represented there. I came home feeling inspired and anxious to get going in the studio. I took a day to drive through the Kananaskis region of Alberta, so am working on a piece based on pictures I took that day. The mountain scenery was spectacular.
I have been a full time artist for over 30 years. I live in a small village outside Vancouver with my husband Alan, who is also an artist. I love to paint and I love to teach people how to paint. When I'm not painting, my favorite thing to do is spend time outdoors with my dog, Havoc.
