I am a re-emerging artist with a disability, adapting my art studio business to thrive and create joy.

I've been an artist and art instructor for a long time now, more than 25 years. I started out in Calgary, Alberta, moving to Victoria, BC in 1999. I have my B.Ed. in art education and have been teaching in schools and community settings, from young children to seniors. I currently teach part time in the WSANEC Indigenous community at an adult education centre. I love teaching very much, but making art is my first love. In my earlier art career I was painting public art mural projects for the City of Victoria, and showing my work in various places around the city with good success. In 2012 I hit a wall when my health failed after a long, slow decline. Rising from the ashes of treatment and recovery, I now live with a challenging chronic illness and disability. It has taught me to value creative work even more deeply, and how to care for myself as an artist with more compassion. I often hear the term "emerging artist" used to describe a young or new artist trying to establish themselves in the art scene. As a mature and experienced artist I am now RE-EMERGING and reinventing my art career so I can thrive now more than ever. Painting, printmaking, illustration, drawing and design fill me with incredible joy and satisfaction. I feel so excited when I make something new! Finding ways to connect with an audience that are sustainable for me has lead me to the online world of Etsy, my own website and social media. This is the avenue that I hope will open up a conduit from my little studio to the big world. Selling my art directly to customers through the internet and the post is going to be great! Every purchase you make helps me in real, tangible ways, plus you are saying "YES! Your art speaks to me!" and that makes me so happy. Thank you for your support!
