I paint with nature’s beauty- her patterns, colours, shadows and elemental tensions. I teach Painting with Nature workshops to youth & adults using the Creative by Nature Art Method in retreats, school settings, art camps and 1:1. I am a “nature-taught” painter (I made that up) and have a Doctorate in Transformative Learning from the University of Toronto. I am president of the Salt Spring Gallery, an artist-driven fine art collective. I live, work and play on Salt Spring Island, BC, Canada and love gunk holing around the Gulf Islands on my sailboat Phoenix. Learn more


I will continue exploring this wonderful world of expression you taught me. I am very grateful.
