Whenever I saw the work of artists I thought it was the privilege of a chosen few, until I held the brush for the first time at the age of 67. It was absolutely unbelievable. In wonder I saw and realised that it is all God’s blessing and that there is an artist in everyone.
I am inspired by nature – snow-capped mountains, lakes and waterfalls. Here in Canada we are surrounded by nature. Initially I started with landscapes using water colours, gradually shifting to oil paints and trying my hand at figures and forms. I am absolutely amazed.
I feel restless until I complete a painting. My imagination keeps working till it takes shape on canvas.
