From here to Eternity
Landscapes (12)

Living downtown has its advantages, buildings everywhere, contrasted by parks and trees and mountains in the distance.

 
 
White Peonies
Florals and Blooms (26)

Flowers and blooms always make me happy and give me so much pleasure. I love learning about the background, gardening needs, varieties and just the endless colours or roses, perrenials and more!  Come walk in the garden with me.

 
 
Boats on the Fraser
Water, Water everywhere (19)

Water is so varied and compelling to paint.  From raindrops to reflections, from calm seas to raging storms and rain; it carries new emotion each time I try to recreate the scene on watercolour paper.

 
 
Snowy park days
Where in the World (24)

I enjoy finding different view points from local and far away landscapes. It is a memory or a special area or building that stirs me. The idea brews in my subconscious, sketches are made, colours float in my mind and then suddenly; I just have to get it on paper.

Plein Air (10)

Any day outdoors is a great plein air day, especially when you have others with you!

Flowers and Gates Coloring Pages
Colouring Pages (7)

I enjoy drawing in ink and have 3 sets of different colouring pages - 2 sets are varying scenes from Mexico and the third set are Florals.  They can be painted with watercolour, watercolour pencils or water soluable pens and colouring pencils.  Each picture is on 90lb heavier paper that is 8 x11.5.

Great as gifts for adults and children.

Commissions (6)

I enjoy the challenge and reward of painting commissions. If you are interested in recreating a family scene, landscape, house or portrait to give to someone or for yourself, I would be very happy to assist you in the mediums of watercolour or acrylic.  I require funds upfront and an agreed arrangement on how many visits before and during the commission process.  Here are a few of my satisfied customers.

Trust Fund for Education and HHPF (1)

The University Women's Club of Vancouver has a wonderful program for assisting in education. I support this trust fund by donating images of my art for their art cards.

The Heritage Preservation Fund is another part of the club that is used to sustain the Hycroft Heritage Building. 2020 calendars are available that include donated images of my work in their February calendar page.
