  • How long have you been painting?

    Painting has been a part of my life on and off since childhood. It only has taken a major role since 2005 when I began classes with Cheryl.

  • Why did you first want to learn to paint?

    I have always been creative with things like knitting and sewing, but find that painting gives a more immediate result and satisfaction. I tried decorative painting but found it too rigid.

  • What type of paint do you like to work in?

    Acrylics for the versatility. I also like to play with acrylic mediums.

  • Do you have a favourite subject?

    Right now I’m painting a lot of trees.

  • What inspires you to be creative?

    Colour and texture in painting are very important to me. Often the subject matter is secondary.

  • Do you have any favourite artists?

    I have always been attracted to Monet, van Gogh, and Group of Seven paintings; and more recently the work of Stephen Quiller.

  • How does painting affect your life?

    Painting is a gift to myself. It nurtures me in a good way and helps to balance me. It makes me feel whole.
