After graduating from the  University of Toronto with a Bacelor of Arts ( English) and a Bachelor of Education, I taught young children for a time in Toronto. But, i can't remember a time when I wasn't drawing or painting. So when I moved to Thunder Bay, while working and raising my children, i was thrilled to havce the opportunity to study art formally, albeit on a part=time basis. Eventually, I was awarded a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with honours form Lakehead University. I continue to pusue my artistic goals through attending workshops, and self study.
