I live on a large island in Lake Huron.
I have lived here for 26 years with my husband.
Before that, I lived in North Western Ontario for 40 years.
My cities were Winnipeg and Thunder Bay, half day car drives away.
I have made art my whole life.
While raising my family of four kids, I taught classical piano and continued my art.
I obtained two fine art honours BA degrees through distance education.
Craft Ontario award for mid-career excellence.
Does that mean that although I am in my mid-60’s and have pursued art my whole life that I am merely in the middle of my artistic career? Yay.
Mid-Career - those words make me want to go closer to the edge.
Those words make me want to go deeper into myself.
I want to go somewhere on my art path that I have not been before, and that I do not know.
I want to be brave in this journey. I want to take more risks.
