Artist Bio or Statement / Bio de l’artiste ou la déclaration

As long as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for creating things with my hands. I enjoyed sewing, knitting and other crafts as a child however I didn’t start drawing until I was an adult. A friend talked me into trying a drawing class one day. I was amazed and delighted that I could turn a blank sheet of paper into something that looked like a real 3-dimensional object. At first, I drew portraits and still-lives but then I started drawing nature and I was hooked. The challenge of trying to emulate the endless colors, textures and shapes found in nature fascinates me. I work only from my own photo references and spend hours visiting gardens taking and adjusting photos. I can visit the same botanical garden and find something new and breath taking every time. My goal is to share those unique moments in time with others.
