She now resides in Calgary as a professional artist working with oils and acrylics. Her experiences in trail riding, hiking and cross country skiing, golfing and gardening has given her inspiration for many paintings. Her repertoire represents a large variety of mountain and prairie scenes and still life subjects. Her favourite subject is the cowboy and life on a typical ranch of the Canadian west.
