Education

Concordia University - Bachelor's Degree in Science - 1972

As a self-taught artist, I have attended and participated in many workshops in all media with numerous renowned artists. I am currently studying art with "Virtual Art Academy," a four year program with Barry John Raybould. As an instructor, I have given demos over the years in Québec and abroad. I have taught water color and drawing to a group of women at the Center of Arts in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and presently continue to do so in my studio.

For several years I have volunteered as a coordinator and a member of the selection committee for the annual "Shield of Athena" art auction, a non profit organization for victims of family violence. I am a founder and active member of Ville Saint-Laurent Artist Association since 1987 as well as a Signature member of the Pastel Society of Eastern Canada, and vice president and exhibition coordinator of the Artists' Association of Dollard. Past memberships include the Independent Arts Club, Montreal Arts Club, Circle des Artistes Peintres et Sculpteurs du Québec, and the House of Arts in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
