One of my passions is enjoying the color and beauty of life around me – I seek out beautiful cities and gardens when I travel and I love seeking solace in my own backyard garden and studio. I am currently working with paper collage, using paper which I alter. The result is paper with such interesting textures and patterns - which inspire me and guide me to the end result. I love experimenting with different papers, gel mediums and pigments in my works. I have worked in mixed media, acrylic, pastel and oil.
In 2003, I was honored to win the Vivian Thierfelder Trophy at the Alberta Orchid Society Show for my large oil painting, “Cattleya Hawaiian Sunset”. In 2003 I was awarded a commission to paint a work of the province’s official stone, petrified wood, for the 2004 Alberta Environment Week poster. My work, “Daily Chores”, a serene scene from the Ukrainian Cultural Village, was chosen for the Art Acquisition Program of Strathcona County.
I regularly show in Art Society of Strathcona County art shows.
