Welcome! You will find postings of my work on this site. I am a watercolour artist and weaver working summers in my studio on beautiful Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada; you will find me in Guelph, Ontario the rest of the year. The studio is located just off the Cabot Trail ten minutes drive from the Gaelic College. My work is available directly from my studio, at the beautiful Victoria County Creates Gallery in Baddeck, and at the Celtic Colours Fibre Festival held annually in October in Baddeck. I also teach tapestry and weaving in Toronto during the winter season.
