Her favorite quote from a patron “Everybody sings in a different colour”
“I was born and grew up in Bermuda but now live permanently in Halifax, Nova Scotia. After a 28 year career as a professor of Biology, I turned my passion to painting in watercolour. My paintings are largely landscapes and/or waterscapes. My subjects include Bermuda scenes, Vermontfarmsteads, lakes and rivers, and Nova Scotian marsh-lands, flood plains, and lakes. I also love painting Margaree River, and other Cape Breton scenes. In all my paintings, I attempt to capture the essence of the environment, especially in creating the energy and mood of the subject.
