WATERCOLOURS



I am a Canadian artist but was born in Hilversum, the Netherlands.  My mother is a fibre artist and my stepfather was an artist and painted in watercolours, arcylics and oils.  There always was a lot of art in the home so the love and appreciation of art rubbed off on me.  I focus on watercolours and at times add definition and punch to my work with ink. 

Subject matter includes places I have travelled to, landscapes, flowers, people and pets. However, I also work in acrylics and oils.  I completed my Fine Arts Certificate at the Faculty of Extension, University of Alberta in 2016.  In 2015, as a birthday present for my 60th birthday, my lovely husband, George, arranged for a painting holiday in Provence, France. That motivated me more than ever, to paint, paint, paint.
