Hi everyone, and welcome to my colorful world of creative expression. My artistic journey began on the shores of a large glacier lake in British Columbia, Canada, where my brother and sisters and I used nature as our palette. Since our playground was the forest, rocky shore and sandy beach, our Mother had us collect pine-cones, unique pebbles and moss that we used to create collages and a variety of other creative projects.
Since it was a very long trek to the nearest store, my Mother used old curtains and pillow cases to teach me how to sew on her old treadle Singer sewing machine. When I wasn't spearing my fingers with the needle from that old beast, I was creating outrageous outfits and bizarre home decor to brighten our house. Since we didn't have TV, I often wonder where my passion for color and design came from.
