I'm a paintress who loves to be out sketching in nature. I love walking through the fields and woods near my house to sketch, paint and study nature. I visit England often where I explore the unbelievable beauty of its landscapes and nature which inspire me to paint! I paint nature, landscapes, fantasy and portraits in a realistic but expressive style. I love Nature Sketching and Creative Journaling, and with my blog, introducing others to the joys of “looking closer and taking notice of what’s around us”.
I have a BA in Art and studied at the Academy of Realist Art in Toronto, Canada. I have illustrated for Nature Centers, books and a CD album cover. For three years I was Co-Director of the Museum of European Art in Clarence NY where I helped to introduce upcoming local and international artists to the community.
Please visit my website below to see my original paintings and read all about my adventures on my blog page. I also give lots of tips on 'how to' draw and paint in the field or in studio.
