Biography of 'the Accidental Artist'

 

                The need to create something has been the driving force of my life.

                        I have spent my whole life having real practical training, originally

                                       the plan was to become a designer/decorator,

         but as we all know life can throw a curve ball into the best laid plans.

      So my creative portfolio will not look like any other artist's, my experiences & jobs

are varied ways to express art. I can create/design your business advertising layouts,

cut & style your hair, sew and create anything from clothes to practical home needs, create fabulous dried floral arrangements & use a whole retail store as a functioning art palate,  for merchandise display.  

                      Another curve ball event, gave me a unique opportunity to return to grade one, it was presented to me, a field trip with my eldest grandchild’s grade one class to the Leighton Art           Institute in Calgary’s foot hills. 

                       Everyone in the little class was given a small drawing pad & a pencil, to go out into the very inspiring foot hills to sketch what we saw. 

                       That field trip opportunity re-inspired a far too long dormant love of drawing. 

Inspirations come in many forms, there are no end to the idea’s to draw, armed with graphite, colour & water colour pencil’s & Paper’s … so many wonderful types of paper’s to create on.

                       As like most artist, I believe art should speak to you, sooth you or move you, 

                    inspire  a conversation or make you laugh, at its best art should give you peace. 

                It has taken a life time to get back to the art  of where I should have been all along, 

                                                                             needless to say, 

                                                      I recommend that should you get the chance to 

                                                           return to grade one, you should take it.
