Welcome to my Gallery! I am an artist, gemologist, jewelry designer, knitter and love to cook. I am an artist in every sense of the word. The world around me serves as inspiration. Loving to travel , experience different cultures, I focus on nature and the nature of people. Graduating from Concordia University in Arts I continued my education at Gemological Institute of America and became a graduate gemologist. One thing leads to another and the art of jewelry design caught my attention. Studying under renowned Montreal jewelry designer Paolo Vena I created my own jewelry design business over 20 years ago, selling to customers around the world. Recently I was drawn back to my beginning as an artist and started to paint. The obsession continues taking courses in technique and different mediums. I paint what I love, ocean themes, landscapes many of which feature dramatic weather and sunsets. My life is about creating and expressing myself through any form of art, this is just the beginning!
