I live in beautiful Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. Penticton is best known for its beaches, wine, and the mythical Ogopogo lake creature.
I am a published designer and have published several books, magazine articles and patterns since 2003. I taught painting classes at Michaels in Calgary, Alberta before I moved into publishing. I love to teach and share ideas with students.
I am an active and contributing member of the DecoArt Helping Artist team, an FM Dynasty Brush Ambassador , AFCI Designer Member, and an ambassador for Stampendous.
My designs can be found in the new Painting World Magazine along with the On-Line Publications’, Pixelated Palette, and The Painting Ezine. My designs are what I like to call “Primsy”, a whimsical take on the old primitive style….with a twist now to mixed media. My projects now often include basic decorative painting techniques along with stamps, stencils, papers, embellishments and more.
I keep busy painting samples for Stampendous, and (pre-Covid) could often be found demoing in their booth at conventions and trade shows.
I love trying new things and finding new ways to use products.
