back forward

I was born in N. Vancouver in 1961
the middle child of European immigrants, and raised on Vancouver Island in various family constellations. Drawing was my first language and became my preoccupation and gift. My formal education began in 1981 at Emily Carr University in two stints, then Concordia University to complete my MFA in 1996.

Having worked for a corporation,
the government and several arts organizations to support my studio practice, I now paint full time from my home studio in Fanny Bay, BC. Music, dance, photography, writing and the garden feed me, but painting calls me, with great insistence.

My work is collected in Canada, USA, UK and Hong Kong.
