The interest and passion for painting have always accompanied me in life. While living in Italy as a stay-at-home mom, I experimented oil painting for the first time. Since then, with alternating phases, the need and the urgency to express myself through painting has never really left me. Upon returning to Canada, work commitments prevented me from cultivating this great passion of mine.
When I attended an art show for the first time, a new spark of inspiration and desire to paint became alive again and was enthusiastically moved to explore new mediums such as watercolour, pastels and acrylics.
Being a proud member of various art associations, I not only participate/exhibit in art shows, but also workshops and occasional classes, to improve my techniques and artistic vision. In the process, I am beginning to create my own style, while still loving and exploring most art styles presented in the field.
