Drawing and painting have been an exciting challenge for me for many years. Joseph Wong, my first drawing teacher, was instrumental in awakening what was a passion unknown to me at the time. Since then, I have continued to draw, create collages and paint. My work has been influenced by the formalized learning I have done with Adrienne Moore, Mark Glavina, Kerry Vaughn Erickson, Lisa Visage, Kathy Swift and Tanya Bone.
In 2007, I joined the Richmond Artists Guild and shortly thereafter started attending their life drawing sessions. Since then, I have worked with drawing materials such as ink and “sticks” and watercolour, acetate and felt markers, graphite and charcoal. I am grateful for the many models who provide inspiration and opportunities to explore various media and substrates.
