I worked in the financial world  in Toronto and New York City and moved to Nova Scotia in 1995 to take on  a completely new venture - retail.  My husband, John Shearson, and I owned and operated the seasonal Warp & Woof Gifts and Gallery in Chester, Nova Scotia until we closed it in 2012.

I picked up a paint brush in 2004 and started showing first in our Gallery ad then in various other galleries and group shows.  I sold my first few pieces, under the name Isabella Fletcher, in our gallery.
I joined the Aspotogan Arts and Crafts group of artists in 2014 and Abstract Studio in 2016.


I have taken painting and drawing workshops/open studio sessions with Saim Caglayan, Robert Seyffert, Malcolm Calloway, Jennie Carton, Brian Atyeo, Heather Sayeau, Leya Eveyln, Barbara MacLean, Dawn Harwood-Jones, Wayne Boucher, Lynda Shalagan, Margaret Best, Pat Dews  and Harold Klunder.

You may visit  me in my studio all year round, by appointment.
