I was born in Holland and immigrated to Canada, with my parents, at the age of 4.
I have always had a passion for the visual arts. Starting at a very early age drawing and painting was a very favourite pastime. As I got older, I took a number of workshops in different mediums, oils, pastels, watercolours, and pen and ink.
For a number of years I was unable to spend as much time as I would have liked. Raising a family, and working outside the home took up most of my time.
Deciding to get back to painting after 25 years, I took an acrylics for beginners workshop and was hooked. I‘ve discovered acrylics and have a passion for recreating the vivid and wonderful colours of nature.
Landscapes are my forte, but I am continuing to expand my work with different applications and methods of painting.
I have participated in the local art walk and in a non-juried show at our local gallery.
