I was born in Spain and grew up in Toronto. I came to Whistler for an afternoon drive in 1986 and never left. I have a wonderful husband and two amazing children.
I started painting in 2001 when I met Lyle MacDonald, a local artist. Since then I have taken many workshops and classes including continuing education classes at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, and through the Federation of Canadian Artists in Vancouver. I am a volunteer organizer of the Whistler Workshops on the Lake for the Whistler Arts Council.
We are very lucky to live in such a beautiful place. I love to explore our local mountains and coastal areas, always with camera in hand. I have travelled by foot, bike, skiis, snowshoes, gondola, bus, boat, ferry, raft, train, and airplane. My adventures have exposed me to many beautiful places which I have tried to capture in my paintings.
