I grew up on a farm near Hussar, Alberta.  I went to school in Hussar through grade nine and then to Drumheller for High School.  I always drew in my school books as a child. After high school I went to U of C and pursued microbiology and education.  I taught school in Delia for a year before I got a job with the government and worked at the lab in Calgary for 30 years.  During my leisure time I took courses in oil painting and drawing.  I joined the Cochrane Art Club to further my involvement with art.  Recently I started taking classes in the use of coloured pencil and graphite for botanical subjects.  I am focusing on these two medias and am really enjoying the results.
