acrylic and mixed media
I grew in a Newfoundland outport with a strong desire to create art. In the winters I would make abstract snow sculptures with my mother’s bread knife which I would sneak out of the house. At age 15, I acquired oil paints and started painting. I sold two paintings for $5.00 in the village. At 16, I attended painting classes from an English woman painter in Grand Falls. She taught a class of teenage girls on Friday after school and charged us $0.30 a class.
