Watercolor paintings have always had a special place in my heart.
With it’s fluid nature, spontaneity, and natural transparency; no media is more compelling and personally expressive.
I’d always longed to develop my painting skills and explore my passion for the arts. So now, with my children grown and out on their own, a new world has opened to me. Amazing and unexpected opportunities have presented themselves. New friends and travel have awakened the desire to express myself through my painting like never before. I have been fortunate to have studied with some truly amazing artists. Their generosity and talent has been such inspiration. And we are all so fortunate to be living in a time when the masters of the medium are available to us as instructors.
It has long been my dream to create a studio – an artistic environment where artists can study together as well as with many of these masters. On returning from one beautiful painting location after another, I became more aware that my hometown of Vancouver is no less spectacular a destination. This world-class city, with its urban energy, mountain views, and magnificent expanse of sea, provides more than enough inspiration for any artist.
And so the creation of my new studio – a natural evolution for me – is an extremely exciting new opportunity, the chance for artists and instructors to paint together in a relaxed and creative environment, nestled in the heart of one of the world’s most vibrant cities.
I do hope you can come experience this wonderful place and express yourself in art like never before.
