PAINT, INK, FEATHERS AND FUR

 

From Baby Swiss, rescued by the roadside in a fast food container, to Freddie,

a six week old squirrel brought to me wrapped in a bath towel, they came

through my door along with so many others, in need of shelter, sanctuary and

time to mature. Fledgling grackles, sparrows, ducks, crows, groundhogs…

racing pigeons, lost and starving in the midst of a winter storm, I’ve born

witness to all their stories and found inspiration in their unrelenting drive for a

self actualized existence, time and time again.

In 2017 curiosity about expanding my artistic skills with technology led me to Sheridan College. By 2018 I’d com-

pleted a web design and corporate communications certificate.

Currently, I spend a lot of time with dogs and their people. As a certified dog trainer what I teach is a language both

species can understand; a language encompassing a whole range of cues the least of which is verbal. Using my

communication skills to help dogs and their people understand one another, is one of the richest experiences I’ve

known.

Other more practical assignments include writing for Sun Life Financial, as instructional designer and communi-

cations consultant, and writing a financial newsletter for Manulife Securities Insurance Inc.

My household includes a husband, two young adults, a jubilant little terrier, several birds and sometimes other

creatures with wings, shells or scales.

As a children’s book illustrator, wildlife artist and author, I’m always looking for a new

avenue of artistic expression. More recent accomplishments include the publication

of four stories in a short story anthology, A Slice of Life.

BIOGRAPHY

In 2017 curiosity about expanding my

artistic skills with technology and internet

tools, led me to Sheridan College. By 2018

I’d completed a web design program and

corporate communications certificate.

Currently, as a certified trainer I spend a lot

of time with dogs. Communication

encompasses a whole range of signaling

the least of which is verbal or written.

Helping dogs and their people develop a

unique system of understanding one

another is one of the richest experiences

I’ve known.

As a freelance book illustrator, award

winning wildlife artist and author, I’m

always looking for different avenues of

artistic expression.

My four passions
