September 21, 1947 – December 23, 2015
The exhibition of my first tapestry for the textile teacher’s diploma in Switzerland led to an art career later in Canada. Margareet Van Walsem and George Glenn were the deciding influences during my early years in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. They encouraged me to continue in my art making. I studied Fine Arts at the University of Saskatchewan, graduating with a BFA, magna cum laude.
I am a founding member of the Saskatchewan Craft Council and served in various capacities on the SCC board. I also served on the Board of the Mendel Art Gallery, Saskatoon, for eight years.
I participate in exhibitions and create mixed media artworks that are appreciated by many. The basis of my art is textile/fibre materials and techniques, which I combine with a variety of fine art techniques. My subject matters are generally feminist based and reflect contemporary issues.
