Bio
Early adulthood was all about a formal education (BA, MBA) and career: business, teaching and motherhood. At mid-life things became really interesting and I found that retraining was in order. Thus, took up art studies and received my Fine Art Diploma from the Toronto School of Art in 2009. Since then I’ve played and experimented with various mediums and styles, finding my ‘happy’ place in the simplicity of my current work. 
Life hasn’t stood still. I was introduced to Yoga in 2012 and once again, after exploring different classes and styles, was determined to learn what I needed to learn about this practice. I received my Level I Yoga Teacher Training at Ashram Yoga in New Zealand and Certification in Yoga Nidra with Sheila Cullen in 2016.
