I always felt that there was an inner Bob Ross lurking around inside my brain but didn’t discover it until 2018.
I am retired after a long career in the administration sector – social services/legal etc. If it isn’t my Boys (including the main one) it is my animals that keep me busy. We foster pit bulls for Bullies in Need and it has been the most rewarding of all things! Our 3 cats are paramount in keeping them in line!
I reside in Kawartha Lakes, Ontario, Canada and have done a lot of travelling growing up as an army brat. This is home now and has been for over 30 years.
If I can say one thing about discovering this passion and hidden talent, it truly is freedom. Freedom to create… to let go of the craziness of life and to get into a Zen zone of creativity.
I art with tequila – it opens up the gates to let myself go with the flow of the paint!

Praise for A Gift of Art
“I just wanted to send a quick email with my gratitude for what A Gift of Art has done for Hailey’s confidence. I have seen such an improvement… over the past two months as well as having friends and family tell me how much more out spoken and confident Hailey seems, it really is because of the opportunity you have given her this summer – THANK YOU!”
Thank you to our sponsors!

We want to recognize that we are on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe People who were on this wonderful land long before the rest of us. We wish to acknowledge the long history of the First Nations and Metis People in Ontario and show respect to the neighbouring community of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.
Nous voulons reconnaitre que nous somme sur le territoire traditionnel des Peuples Anishinaabe. Je tiens a souligner la long histoire des Premieres nations et des Metis dans Ontario et de faire preuve de respect envers la communaute voisine de la Premiere nation de Mississauga de l’Isle Scugog.
