About the Artist
I'm inspired by the end result of creating original works. Knowing I can create something from nothing without any hovering expectations allows my art to be unencumbered. Over the years my body of work has developed further with my personal access to high tech cutting tools and the off cuts of scrap materials as an end result. I then have ample opportunity to incorporate glass, wood and an assortment of metals into my mixed media works.
As I create my pieces, I will rotate and spin the viewing perspective as the work is being created. This is not necessarily conventional but it has a check and balance effect for me to be able to turn the work 360 degrees until I am confident of a final resting point.
Designs, colors and textures of layers upon layers often play out in my works. Consistently my approach when creating is, nothing is simple and yet it is simply nothing.
I did attended NSCAD in Halifax many years ago and have been fortunate enough to pursue my creative side with a significant yet casual approach in the years since.
I love having our home, studio and green space filled with original works of art. Be it artwork created by my husband Tom, or art collections from artists I truly appreciate, and to include the pleasure of having my original works hung, an abundance of original artwork has been the most significant and joyous treasure associated with being an artist.
I have been on the Uxbridge Studio Tour since 2003 and have stayed an active participate in the running of the organization for many years.
The Ontario Society of Artists accepted me as a member in 2008 and I have been actively involved with the Uxbridge Artists Collective. The UAC group promotes our studio efforts by landing our artwork in galleries across the GTA.
