I paint with nature’s beauty- her patterns, colours, shadows and elemental tensions. I also offer creative mentoring to youth and adults through the Creative by Nature Art Method taught in retreats, school settings and art camps. I am a “nature-taught” painter (I made that up) and have a Doctorate in Transformative Learning from the University of Toronto. 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.
