It is especially exciting to complete a project that emphasizes my own appreciation for the subject.”

They now live in Olds, Alberta where she continues painting and reaching out for new adventures.

Art is like music, but to the eye, life’s beautiful things put onto canvas tell a story and affect our emotions
