Well, at this point my involvement in the Inside Barkerville project has been put on hiatus, my I now feel free to post some of the paintings I did for it. It consumed a lot of my time, and I finished a lot of work during that period. I am grateful for the experience, and the practice in illustration, but I doubt very much that I’ll go back to this exacting style of painting. Nevertheless, I did turn out a few good paintings, and this one was one of the most challenging. I don’t have much experience with buildings, and painting straight edges, and I am pleased with how it ended up.

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks.

In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...
