I was born in rural Alberta, Canada.  However, most of my schooling was in Calgary and then I pursued a nursing career.  I moved to Victoria, BC where I married and raised 2 children.  When the kids were 12 and 15, we travelled around the world with them for 6 months.  Since then I have travelled to over 50 counties.  I retired early and have had the opportunity to study art.  I graduated with a Certificate of Visual Arts from the Vancouver Island School of Art (VISA) in 2008 and received a Diploma of Fine Arts from VISA in 2010 followed by a Certificate in the Independent Studio Program, 2011.

I have been investigating Ambient Sound, Music(Jazz), Travel through Architecture, Science(Biology) and recently I have been focusing on Communication Towers and questioning the role new technologies have in our society and our response to them.
