Take a peek into my studio and See what inspires me to create my paintings and what’s been happening in my studio and on my travels.

I love to travel, see new places and meet new people. I love to create bold colourful paintings, many of them based on my wonderful travels.

Special 45th Birthday

Hi Friends, I had a wondeful birthday this year. My birthday was on a Friday and our long Thanskgiving weekend.  I had a nice week in Montreal and then a wonderful dinner out with my husband at the new StoneRiver Retaurant here in Cumberland.  Beautiful old Mansion along the water that has been transformed into a restaurant.  The owner is of German descent and her fiancee is wonderful Chef.  For the whole month of October they are celebrating Octoberfest and they have wonderful menu and live music everyweekend by the wonderful Diamonds.

Here are few pics from my birthday week and Thanksgiving:
