I am also the Artist and Author of The Sacred Feminine Oracle App published in 2016 Indie Goes apps. And the Sidewayz Tarot self published in 2020. I have exhibited my art in Calgary, Vancouver, Kelowna, Vernon, Enderby, Salmon Arm Art Gallery, St. Georges Grenada, together with the Grenada Arts Council, Three Okanagan Erotic art shows, The Armstrong public gallery, many craft and art markets over the years as a potter. I was a founding member of the Okanagan Artisan's guild, now market, The Salmon Arm Art Gallery, The Roots and Blues Festival, The Enderby Wild Wallflower Community Mural project, The Enderby Arts Council, and, together with my parents, The Okanagan Science Centre. I co-painted, with Rebecca Shepherd, murals at Hanoi 36, Weekends and the Okanagan Science Centre. We also painted murals and playground at a small school in Mt. Moritz Grenada, I am no longer painting murals, but could be a good resource person. Rebecca and I gave a workshop to the arts council in Enderby and then presented a slide show of our trip and art adventures in 2019. I am interested in offering art classes on acrylics, colour pencil, graphite pencils, and mixed media. I have also designed workshops for work places, "Branching Out" was a workshop I gave at the Health Unit at Splatisin in Enderby. I also gave a "Looking Up" workshop to parents at Shihiya school. I have just moved to Kamloops and I am interested in getting to know the arts community here. I am very community minded and can't wait to get to involved in this vibrant community. My dance background is tap and jazz dancing, I also created stage sets for the Performing Art Centre in Vernon.
