Two years after I retired from teaching in 2001, I decided to formally study painting and drawing at Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario while living in a lovely rural setting in Oro-Medonte. My images have won awards at local fairs, I continue to exhibit in juried shows, and I welcome opportunities to create on a commissioned basis. As a member of the Barrie Art Club, Orillia Fine Arts Association, and Blue Mountain Foundation for the Arts in Collingwood, my works are exhibited in various venues.
To focus on human or animal subjects is my preference, my goal being to capture the spirituality of God’s creations with a realistic likeness. Landscapes and flowers, magnificent examples of God’s powers, often become the focus of my artistic imagery, but I will attempt a humourous subject from time to time. While graphite emphasizes the primitive lights and shadows, acrylics, oils and pastels allow me the chance to explore colourful glories of the living spirit. Time passes. I preserve precious moments.
