I live with my husband John and dog Lorenzo in the beautiful village of Chester, Nova Scotia, on Mahone Bay.


I work in acrylic and collage on canvas and wood panels, primarily abstract expressionism. I also paint landscapes and figurative subjects.


Abstract art is often not readily understood. It does not have identifiable subjects, but rather shapes and colours are its defining elements. These elements are the way power, rhythm, grace, and above all, energy, are brought to the work and expressed in the work.


Upon openly viewing an abstract piece (ie., without looking for specific subjects or symbols), a viewer will discover emotion, perhaps memories, or see a story or narrative. It is a worthwhile challenge and will be a wonderful discovery.


I believe art is important.  It enriches, explains, expresses and enlivens artists and art appreciators.

I have done and am willing to consider commissions.

Work can also be seen at Teichert Gallery, Halifax, NS, seasonally at The Captains' House Gallery, Chester, NS, and in my studio, all year round - please call ahead.


I welcome any comments you may have - please leave them via my Contact page.
