My four passionsPAINT, 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, 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 that restless whisper of curiosity led me to the doors of Sheridan College where I completed a web design

certificate program.

And as a certified dog trainer I stay connected with animals, their issues and their distinctly perceptive, non-human

window on our shared world.

Other more practical assignments include writing for Sun Life Financial, 2014 to 2016 as instructional designer and

communications consultant, and writing a financial newsletter for Manulife Securities Insurance Inc. 2010 to 2013,

Where can you find me? Just look for the house with one husband, two young adults, a jubilant little terrier, several

birds and sometimes other creatures with wings, shells or scales.

As a freelance book illustrator, award winning wildlife artist and author, I’m always

looking for different avenues of artistic expression. More recent accomplishments

include the publication of four short stories in a short story anthology

A Slice of Life, March 2018.

BIOGRAPHY

Web design has been an exciting new

avenue to explore as it synergizes all

those previously scattered threads of

my life. An innate condition of

insatiable curiosity led me to the doors

of Sheridan College where I

completed a web design certificate

program, May 2018.

As a freelance book illustrator, award

win-ning wildlife artist and author, I’m

always looking for different avenues of

artistic expression. More recent

accomplishments include the

publication of four short stories in a

short story anthology A Slice of Life,

March 2018.
