I paint because I truly enjoy painting. My earliest memories of painting stem back to painting with my grandmother, Edith MacKay - a talented, hobbyist oil painter. Over the years I have continued to paint and take the occasional art class (in the midst of establishing my day-job as a dietitian). Now in my 30's, I have renewed my commitment to painting seriously and sharing my work with others.
At present, the philosophy guiding my work is: "the more I paint, the better I will paint". My inspiration comes from capturing life's little moments in paint - with a focus on animals, landscapes, and still life. I work exclusively in water media (acrylics and watercolours).
I currently live in London, Ontario with my partner Mark, our dog Wylan, and our 5 cats (yes, 5 cats!).
