NS Art Crawl Portrait

I'm originally from Toronto, but now live in beautiful North Vancouver.  My life thus far can be divided into four stages.  I was first a student; second an electrical engineer; third a stay-at-home mom and fourth an artist.  (Truthfully, I have been an artist ALL my life but it has taken me a good long time to have the courage to tell others.)  I have not had the fortune to attend an art college; instead, I taught myself to draw at a young age, studied photography in high school and developed my painting skills through mentorship, trial-and-error, reading and watching videos.  When I am not creating art, I love to hike.
