Artist Bio & Statement:

Painting with acrylics and epoxy resin, I seek to capture the magical light and colours of water in all its beauty and mystique. I take the viewer on an intimate experience, from the most serene reflections on water’s surface to the surge and spray of a powerful wave.

I have been a professional visual artist my entire adult life, showing my paintings and stained-glass pieces in both group and solo exhibits. I have been an Arts teacher for many years, teaching in schools, at the University of Ottawa, and in many private classes and workshops, recently in virtual format.

With my writer husband Rick Taylor, I have spent the past ten winters in Australia, Hawaii, Tahiti and the Caribbean, surfing, snorkelling, sailing, and open-water swimming, where I continue to be inspired by the “Liquid Light”.
