Biography and Artist Statement:

I attended the Arts Program at Red Deer College from 1993 - 1996 studying Art and Design.

In 2001 had a seizure caused by a car accident causing me to lose my memory. Following the accident I did continue to draw and paint relearning my skills as an artist. Through the years I have participated in one man shows at The Hub, Recreation Center, Red Deer Museum, Red Deer Public Library and with the Alberta Council. I have completed private commissions for a number of clients throughout the years and for the past few years I have volunteered my time and expertise to instruct workshops at The Hub in Red Deer. I instruct in a wide variety of mediums: silk screening, print making, pen and ink, water colour and acrylic paints. I feel strongly about assisting others to get in touch with their creative side. My biggest passion is to draft in pen and ink, collector cars, trucks, vans and more recently motorcycles. I have developed a line of T-shirts featuring my art, and have been doing private commissions for car collectors throughout central Alberta.

My advice for new artists is to study the old master's and practice daily, discipline is the key to success, this is how I got started. My first creative experiences started as a child drawing and colouring on recycled grocery brown paper bags. When I wasn't drawing on paper bags, I would draw on my mother's walls. It's a good thing she had a sense of humour and that she loved me. At age 16, I was featured in an article in the Edmonton Journal for my drawings of old cars. I have continued to be featured in articles in newspapers throughout central Alberta through the years.
