Springing from a family with strong artistic roots, it was inevitable I would be the same, although my journey to this point has been a long one. When I am not bandying words in my head, I may be found in the garden, in the studio drawing, or cooking up a culinary storm. The photography on this site and drawings are all mine. Thanks for dropping by.


An artist and writer, I work from a studio on Salt Spring Island.
