It has been a great adventure teaching Art on three different continents and in colourful, rich and diverse cultures for the past quarter of a century. The amount of creative energy and artistic talent I have seen and had the honor of fostering in places as varied as Kampala, Uganda, Cairo, Egypt, Weimar, Germany and Pic Mobert, Canada never ceases to amaze me. People everywhere have so much to express. There are no boundaries, no limits in the universal language of Art.
During my BFA (with a major in Art Education) at Concordia University in Montreal, I specialized in printmaking, but have since enjoyed teaching a huge range of media. Doing my Bachelor of Education at Nipissing University was super partly due to the stunning and inspiring nature of the area. Supporting students of all ages with discovering their own strengths and personal artistic intentions is a process I truly love.
Being an International Baccalaureate Visual Arts Assistant Examiner for three years represented an exceptional professional growth opportunity for me. Received Carl Sanders Scholarship at Nipissing University in 1993.

In my youth I danced professionally and attended mime school. Perhaps my life is something of a collage. Encouraging others to research their artistic paths is my greatest pleasure.
