It's always hard for me to write about myself without boring people, but I'll try my best, so here it goes...
I was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, then moved to Swift Current, Saskatchewan when I was 6. I was a city girl with a country heart, but was able to enjoy many summers on my Grandparents farm in west central Saskatchewan where there was always horses to ride as it seemed impossible to ever own one myself. Those summer vacations turned into a lifelong passion for me. Just before my 16th birthday, I finally was able to buy my first horse from the money I earned while working for my Dad's janitorial business.
But riding horses wasn't enough. I was also drawing them. Not sure why or how I got started in art, but my earliest recollection would be from the "Billy & Blaze" books by C.W. Anderson. I loved the artwork in them & studied on how to achieve the same likeness.
Over the years I have worked with pencil, pastels, & coloured pencil, & pen, but now I choose to only work in pastels. I've taught myself all I know without any formal training in art.
