Paintings of “Bad Dogs” and “Wild Women” cover the walls of my art studio. This may seem like an odd 

juxtaposition, for which my only defence is that these are the things that I love. My figurative “Wild 

Women” portraits are playful, colorful and celebratory and my work is always evolving to capture the 

essence of women. I specialize in painting women who are not models, but rather friends and family 

looking to learn about and reveal secrets in themselves through having their portrait painted. As for the 

“Bad Dogs”, what can I say? The love of my life is one very naughty pitbull-whippet cross who is my love 

and long time muse.

I am a self-taught artist who has been working and teaching art for over twenty years. My award 

winning work regularly appears in juried art shows and various West-Coast galleries. I live in East Sooke 

with my husband and two children, who I have had the tremendous gift of homeschooling and co-

creating a creative life together.
