Location: Canada

I am inspired to paint Life from the great palette of God's design.In Western Canada mountains, chinooks, prairies, horses although common it is exceptional beauty that as an artist I can interpret. Everywhere I look, everything I see has the potential of becoming a painting... I like to create a close semblance and my favourite medium is pastel but I love oil as well. I have joined a few clubs specifically the federation of canadian artists, the calgary sketch club and the airdrie artist guild. I teach classes to students & adults, I provide seniors art enrichment programs and teach art therapy for the assisted living.

Autos - Saddest Clown “Autos - Saddest Clown”
