After working in industry as a Chartered Accountant for a number of years, I retired to raise my family. During this time I enrolled at the University of Calgary and obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Distinction in Art, with a concentration in painting and drawing. I had work shown in the Kensington Art Gallery upon graduation.
At that time I also taught classes at North Mount Pleasant Art Centre in Calgary. I am currently a Juried Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists as well as the Alberta Society of Artists.
