A Toronto based artist for 20 years, since 2009 she has based her home and studio on Gabriola Island.

The current focus in the studio is on paintings from the series Ancient Light, Angles of Repose, The Edge & Traces of Water which are brought together under the umbrella of The Edge Effect.

These paintings focus on the ethereal nature of the intertidal zone – on documenting the movement of water, edges, light and traces of erosion.
