Painting the Canadian Landscape
It's tough to decide which brings me greater joy: making art or teaching art. So I decided I don't have to decide. I do both. I could wax eloquent about how important tapping into our creative selves is, but why don't I just come to your workplace for a time and we can explore this together? We can call it group therapy, business development, morale boosting, art education or serious play (which was the name of my last workshop).
A warning: this may unleash some serious creativity and joy. It may even lower your stress levels or make you feel euphoric, curious, fearless, and maybe even a little bit like a kid.
It's easy! I will actually come to visit you.
I live in Edmonton, but I'm allowed to go wherever I like, because I'm a grown up. So let's make it happen.
So it all started as a kid while hanging out in Millcreek Ravine. That's where my love of nature began. The smell of creosote-soaked trestles and the thick woods still bring the memories back. Who wouldn't fall in love with trees and blue skies poking through? Then driving to the Rockies on family vacations. Canola fields, mountains, endless blue or stormy grey skies.
My home and native land is beautiful Canada, in a province called Alberta, in a city called Edmonton near a beautiful ravine with my husband, 3 kids, our old dog, Charlie, and my grand-dogs, Olive and Arlo.
And I'm a member of The Federation of Canadian Artists & have show often in their Vancouver gallery exhibitions.
