About Me

” Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” Vincent Van Gogh

I live in Ottawa, Canada, with my very patient husband and two guard dogs, or at least that's what they think they are: Sophie my little neurotic Maltese and Chico, just as his name suggests, a very laid back Havanese. You will meet them in some of my posts.

I almost always have my iPad or my iPhone with me on most of my local outings or trips abroad. I take gads of photos, (really too many) wherever I go because I don't like to impose my drawing impulses on my friends and my husband. I prefer to sketch and paint in the privacy of my home, preferably with a cup or two of coffee as I work mainly at the kitchen table or at my art table in the living room, and at other times, in my craft room. I am definitely a creature of comfort!

Over time, I have used various types of journals, watercolours, acrylics, colouring pencils, and pastels. I enjoy experimenting and I consider myself a dabbler, trying different techniques on small projects most of the time except when I am working on my pencil portraits which may take weeks to finish. My left brain is fighting with my right brain at the moment. You will see that too in my posts.

Please join me in this creative journey. My blog and my art are works in progress.

Welcome to ARTiculations where I write and share all the stories related to my art whether it is inspired from the flowers in a vase on my kitchen counter, or from a walk by the river, or from trips around the world. I am a dabbler and consider myself an artist in the making, still looking for my own niche, my own style.
