Lately I’ve been working on three large paintings (24 x 60 inches) with a birch tree theme. Here’s some pictures of a painting in progress. It began outside in the heat wave in the bit of shade I could find. Then I worked away inside listening to some music to help me along.  I thought it may have been complete but decided to create some more interest in the background. Then came a layer of Art Resin for the beautiful glossy finish. The result is brought life to the brown and grey tones and brought it to a happy place.





I had to return to this painting several times before I got to where I really loved it. It’s all atmosphere and you can feel it.  It reflects the weather on the day I finished it and the summer storm rolling in is captured forever.
I’m often asked about how I go about creating the glossy finish on much of my paintings. I use Art Resin. It pours on a UV protectant layer that remain clear over time. A torch comes in handy to release air bubbles. The result is a high gloss finish that brings life to the painting. This series of 6 x 36 inch panels is available at Windsor’s Courtyard in Merrickville, Ontario.

This is the place where I talk about myself. It’s not my favourite thing to do so I’ll keep it short and to the point as I’d rather express myself with paint. I’m obsessed with painting and art. It’s been with me since I was a kid and the realization that I do this daily and it’s my job is something I still can’t wrap my head around.  If my “job” ever become work to me then I’ll stop. I look forward to painting daily and if I’m not painting I’m thinking of painting and new things to try.  Keeping life simple and allowing myself the time and space to let the art develop organically is what I strive to do. I rarely have a plan just a vague image or idea in my head I want to explore. I have to gently remind myself from time to time I have the choice to paint whatever I feel in the moment. It’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea and that’s okay. Maybe in my explorations you’ll find a connection to something I’m working on or working out in the paint. Maybe a painting will intuitively speak to you. Making those connections is another wonder I get to experience and it continues to bring me joy.



I’ve had the pleasure of showing my work as part of an artists collective in the ByWard Market for many years and in galleries in Canada including The Carlen Gallery, Ottawa, The Grimm Gallery, Port Carling and The SideStreet Gallery in Wellington, Ontario. I’ve participated in a group show at the McMichael Gallery in Kleinburg, Ontario group shows in London, England. I’ve experienced exhibited at the The One of a Kind Show, Exhibition Place, Toronto, The Originals Show in Ottawa and last summer at The West Carleton Art Society’s Art on the Grass Show in Carp, Ontario. I’ve had the privilege of being a commissioned artist at Rideau Hall, Ottawa and an exhibitor at the Iceolation Art Gallery in the Snow King’s Castle in Yellowknife.

  1. I was visiting Ottawa for the first time this past weekend and came across your art work. I had to have them! I ended up getting 4 Squares and love them !! I can’t wait to add to my collection ! Thank you thank you !!

  2. Love your bright and cheerful paintings!! I just bought the Geraniums painting at the ByWard Market on Sept. 16th!! I also bought two of the smaller square tree paintings! I have already hung up the Geraniums, it looks amazing! Makes my heart happy! Thank you!

  3. Hi Mary, I am very interested in your Paddles painting once you have any!! I am a paddler from Beach! But teach in Thailand now. I will be home for the summer. Please let me know when they become available. Mari

    1. Hi Mari, that’s awesome! I’m just starting with the paddle themed paintings and I’m so happy you are interested. I paddled for Gananoque and Rideau. I have a few in different sizes and they’ll be up on my website this coming week. When you are back this summer I hope you find one you like- if you see something I post on my webpage and want me to hold it for you I can do that too. What colour did Beach use on their paddles? Thanks for contacting me 🙂
