In My Past Life…

The Jitterbug was a dance invented in underground jazz clubs in the 1930's & involved all manner of inspired improvisation leaving you feeling free and uninhibited.

I often feel like a Jitterbug... inspired in many creative directions & rarely sitting still.

Acrylic Paintings & Prints   My latest paintings are inspired by life in the Pacific Northwest and simple scenes of country life. Images are available as original paintings as well as prints on paper or canvas. Some images are also reproduced on a variety of gift products.

The Silhouette Series - Nature-Inspired Upcycled Art   This series of artwork incorporates my love of vintage ephemera (paper) and our beautiful West Coast nature. In this series I hand-dye shapes made of vintage sheet music and old maps and embed them into the paint, as well as antique keys, baker’s twine and other found objects. creating an atmospheric silhouette.

Antiques & Ephemera  For more than 15 years I have bought and sold antiques. Everything from rusty farmhouse finds to delicate old papers. I am inspired by the mysteries and beauty of old things, especially old photos and ephemera which have so many stories to tell. And my collection of vintage records is my greatest love - from early Canadian bluegrass to 60’s Bossonova records.

PAINTINGS, prints & giftware

I am a mixed media artist, working in a whimsical, naive folk-art inspired style.  My work is available as original paintings and prints and also on a variety of giftware including Greeting Cards, Magnets, Bookmarks, Notebooks and more.

My beachside garden studio overlooks the waters of White Rock, B.C. Canada, so my paintings are often inspired by nature and the ocean.  My work is available through this website, my Etsy shops, and in select retail outlets. Throughout the year I attend many arts & craft markets so please check out my Events page or follow me on social media to find out where I am going next.

I mostly work in acrylics, but over the years I have worked in other mediums, including Watercolours, Alcohol Inks, & Mixed Media.

You can browse a few samples here. Follow me on Social Media to learn about my new works and my upcoming markets.

COMING SOON - New - Limited Edition “Canvas Prints Mounted on Wooden Panels”. They are easy to hang directly on the wall. They look just like the original, because they are printed onto canvas and mounted onto the wooden backing. Hand painted and distressed wooden edges make each one unique.

Available soon in my Etsy site, select retail stores, or find me at my upcoming markets.

Silhouette Series

These whimsical, folk-art style paintings use elemental forms, colour & texture to create sweet but beautiful scenes. I make them using layers of vintage sheet music & maps that I cut into shapes and dye by hand using a combination of inks and paint. I also incorporate antique skeleton keys, bits of wood, bakers twine & other found objects. Each piece is one of a kind, but I do paint them in series, so you can create groupings on your wall. Each comes with a signed authenticity card.

Come see them in person at one of my upcoming markets or in select retail locations. Please follow me on Instagram to see my latest artwork for sale, or contact me to inquire about a particular painting.
