RESUME: How I got Here

1969-1972: oil painting workshops led by the late Marlene Bloomstone in Montreal.    

Summer, 1972- painting and drawing workshop of Ivan Eyre at the Banff School of Fine Arts. 

For the next 30 years, my life consisted of obtaining an academic education, starting with the study of art history and moving into law, at McGill University in Montreal. 
I obtained my BCL and LLB degrees from McGill in 1978 and 1979 respectively, wrote the Quebec Bar exams the following year and then moved to Toronto in 1980.

I worked as a litigator, in both private and public practises, from 1982 to 1998, during which time I had my two children.

In 1998, I was appointed to the Ontario Superior Court as a Case Management master, (now known as an Associate Judge), where I remained for 18 years.  

2016: I retired from the Bench and began painting landscapes.

2004-2015: summer plein air pastel workshops in New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario, led by Susan Low-Beer
