At 'The Fields, The Woods, The Wetlands, The Town" exhibit at the Norfolk Arts Centre, I wanted to include an interactive art installation. Considering that the purpose of this art project was for the students to begin to appreciate their environment in Norfolk more, I wanted a space where guests of the exhibit could also reflect on elements of their environment in a fun artistic way. There is a large boathouse to colour, sticks to build a miniature fort, a craft area set up for children, and a large piece of paper with this question posed: "What do you love about living in Norfolk County?"
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.
