Educated at the University of Calgary with a Degree in Education, my love of dance led me to a minor in dance and my curiosity with all things connected to history and people led me to pursue a major in Social Studies.  I was able to teach dance for many years, but when a back injury sidelined me, my creative bent needed an outlet, and painting replaced my passion for dance.   

I attended classes at the University of Calgary under instructor Bev Tosh as well as Red Deer College under the instruction of Bev Tosh and Susan Woolgar. I have also studied at workshops under the tutelage of Mike Svob, Suzanna Northcott, Robert Burridge, Doug Swinton, Samantha Dasilva and Jean Pederson.
