The final art project that the classes completed at school were collaborative collages. Each class had a different theme - (The Kindergartens - The Houses of the Town, Grade One - The Buildings of the Town, Grade 3 - The Waterfront of the Town, Grade 3/4 - The Pets of the Town, Grade 6 - The People of the Town, Grade 8 - The Town). After the students created their individual artwork for the collages, and painted the background, I took it all home to my studio where I assembled everything using lamination glue. I absolutely love how they turned out!
I live in Southern Ontario on a farm with my husband, Dennis, and our two daughters. Painting out of my studio on our farm allows me to stay close to my family and to be surrounded by the natural landscape that continues to influence my work.
