Welcome to A Little Touch of Colour! I am thrilled you are visiting. I am an art teacher of nearly two decades and immensely love what I do. I appreciate the opportunity to instil confidence in my students that any dream is possible, be it in the Arts or any field of choice. Creativity and self expression exists within. There are a myriad of outstanding possibilities for all careers and along any avenue of life!
Having attained an Honors Associate of Arts in Liberal Arts and Sciences (USA), a Specialized Honours Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Arts, Montessori Teaching credentials, a Bachelor of Education in Visual and Dramatic Arts (Visual Arts Specialist), and Certification as a Life Coach in Therapeutic Arts (all in Canada) - not to be confused with a qualified Art Therapist, I have enjoyed every moment of my educational journey, as it has helped shape me into the successful and compassionate teacher I am today - hopefully providing inspiration and making a difference along the way!
I am a self-published award-winning author and illustrator. I have also illustrated two previously published books for different authors. I am a painter using the preferred media of Acrylic and Watercolour and find it is a wonderful and therapeutic artistic outlet. I offer paint events for my town in Ontario, Canada and love guiding others to discover their inner artist.
I am a wife and a mother of twin daughters and a son. I cannot express how much I cherish the support of family and friends, as I continue on this fabulous creative adventure!
Do not hesitate to contact me, if you wish to order a copy of "My Good Friend, Ted!" or if you see any art pieces that strike your fancy. I am available for illustration projects and commission pieces as well. Just as a heads up, I only have My Good Friend, Ted! and My Good Friend, Ted! The Sea-quel in The Ocean of Colour for purchase of the picture books.
I custom inscribe each copy! :)
Thank you again for stopping by and I look forward to hearing from you soon. In the meantime, take good care and be well.
