Workshops & Exhibits

As an artist I work mostly in Mixed Media and Acrylics. I paint on canvas and paper and love to Art Journal.


Still time to register for my Summer Kids Art Camp coming soon – August 12 to 16, 2018–  at the Coast Collective Gallery in Colwood! For more information:

Art Journaling is my safe place to let loose and play with art materials and techniques and a way to document my journey as an artist, art therapist, and female citizen of the world! 6 week Art Journalling courses are taught both in my studio and through the Coast Collective Gallery in Colwood, BC.  Please contact me for further information.
