Artist Inspiration

Audrey Hepburn once stated, “To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” My painting is called “Faith”, and though, that could be the little girls name, it is more about the the faith that there is a future for us. That there will be renewal in all living things.
Renewal is faith. To plant a seed and have faith that seed will become food to nourish us. So for me this painting is about having faith in the renewal of seed, the renewal of life, the renewal in faith.

Artist Bio

I am retired registered nurse. We have cottaged here since 1986. We have been in love with Minden Hills since we were both teenagers. Our dream was to have our cottage become our forever home and we are now living that dream.
I have been paining as a hobby for thirty years but became serious in the last ten years after retirement. I have taken courses at The Haliburton School of Art and Design every summer for those thirty year. I paint twice a week at Boathouse Studio on Little Boshkung Lake here in Minden Hills, where I continue to learn and grow as an artist.
