“My roots are deep in the New England soil where I can trace my family tree directly to the Mayflower. I grew up in Massachusetts, summers were spent swimming and sailing on Martha’s Vineyard Island off Cape Cod where I learned to love and appreciate the sea. I moved to Nova Scotia in 1981 and spent 28 years immersed in the strong Maritime culture there. In 2011 I began a new chapter of my life by following my two children out to the West Coast. I fell in love all over again with the mountains and this other sea. After moving from pillar to post – Vancouver to Salt Spring Island – in November of 2016 I finally settled down and bought a house in Ladysmith, BC on beautiful Vancouver Island. I am very excited about setting up my Studio and getting involved in my new community.”
