My Father was a self-taught artist and was totally color blind. He showed me anything was possible. Abstract painting is the release of my creative mind. It is the freedom to discover who I am and my therapy at the end of the day.
Having a creative nature, I have been involved with art in one form or another. From the time I was very young I had a passion for creating, painting, drawing, anything and everything that I could get my hands on.
I started Decorative painting in 1997 and followed that dream for many, many years and still enjoy it today. I became a Decorative Artist Instructor in 2001, when I lived in Edmonton until, with my husband moved to Airdrie, Alberta in 2004. I continued to do Decorative Painting, attending classes and staying involved in this venue.
In 2010, I started taking classes at the Calgary School of Fine Arts with teachers, Daniel Bartlett and Samantha DaSilva. I have discovered the abstract painter within and became a Certified Samantha DaSilva Abstract Artist and Instructor. I took some time working with many different mediums until I found the one that was exactly what I was looking for!
I consider myself a versatile Artist who likes many different techniques and I am always looking for something new and exciting to learn.
