I'm a Canadian Artist living in Switzerland. I studied business and for many years lived and worked in Toronto as a Mortgage Broker. In 2005 my husband was given an opportunity to work in Europe and I followed along happily, knowing it would give me the opportunity to paint full time. We lived in Corfu, Greece until 2014, then relocated to Basel, Switzerland. Much of my work is inspired by the lush green beauty of Corfu and the gorgeous Swiss landscape. I begin each day by walking with my dogs at sunrise, the most magnificent time of the day. The quiet and tranquillity of the early morning provides me with the creative energy I need .I love to create colorful , bold and energetic paintings. During the winter months I tend to create dark and intense pieces.
