I was born & raised in Picture Butte, Alberta, Canada. My interest in art started at a very early age. I enjoyed drawing mostly and as I grew older I started painting with water colors and oils. I took a three year art correspondence course in high school and several other painting courses in later years.
I married soon after high school and started a family and found I had no time to work with my art and drifted away from it. I live on a farm just east of Turin, Alberta, Canada where we have been every since we got married thirty four years ago. I have two children, a son and a daughter who is now married and living nearby with her husband and a beautiful granddaughter.
I discovered the wonderful world of Acrylics several years ago and finally rediscovered my artistic abilities and have been painting steadily ever since. I do some pastels when away from home on camping trips and such. I enjoy doing mostly landscapes as you can see with my images on this site. Most of my work I have sold locally to family, friends and the people in surrounding communities. I hate to part with many of my projects but I know many other people will appreciate and enjoy them. I hope to work as much as possible with my art work (and my golf game) for as long as I can physically do so.
