Welcome to A Little Touch of Colour! I am thrilled you are visiting. I am an art teacher of nearly two decades and love what I do immensely. I appreciate the opportunity to instill the confidence in my students that any dream is possible, be it in the Arts or another field of choice. Creativity and self expression exist within. There are myriad outstanding possibilities for all careers and along any avenue of life!
Having attained an Honours 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 (not to be confused with a qualified Art Therapist), I have enjoyed every moment of my educational journey. It has helped shape me into the successful and compassionate teacher I am today, hopefully inspiring 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 love leading 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! Along with my human family, I also reside with a cat, snake, hamster, and plethora of fish, in Ontario, Canada.
Please contact me if you wish to order a custom-inscribed copy of "My Good Friend, Ted!, My Good Friend, Ted! The Sea-quel in The Ocean of Colour and My Good Friend, Ted! in Ted's Tale of the Tangled-Up Whale" or if you see any fine art pieces or Ted merchandise, which strike your fancy. I am available for illustration projects and commission pieces as well.
Thank you again for stopping by. I look forward to hearing from you soon. In the meantime, take good care and be well.
