My work plays well with ABC as I have always used found objects to paint. Glass has been a favorite medium as it pulls the pigments to the surface allowing for greater color and depth.

I grew up with an artist/art teacher. The early years were in BC, hence my affiliation and appreciation of west coast imagery and customs. The later years were in PEI where I fell in love with the act of folk art. People painting for fun and beauty with what ever they have not purchased.
