I enjoyed working with groups in New Port Richey, Clearwater and St. Catharines. At the same time, winter travels to Dunedin Florida gave me the opportunity to take some watercolour classes at the Dunedin Fine Arts Centre. Then along came a challenge to study floral design and after three years of study I became accredited as a judge in floral design. Now it is time to let all the principles and elements of design blend together as I venture into being creative on canvas and paper with acrylics and watercolours. I suppose I would describe my background as eclectic, basically self taught, with aspirations of creating some work that is appealing both to myself and to others.
