Artist statement: “My wish is that my art engages people, challenges their assumptions about women, provokes critical thought with respect to diversity and stir their humanity—all with the eventual goal of promoting harmony and peace.”

Chosen Montreal Woman of the Year in 2008 by the Montreal Council of Women, her acrylic paintings with vibrant colours and imagery echo peace, hope and infinite renewal. She collaborates closely with organizations that focus on human rights. Convenor for Culture and Heritage for the National Council of Women of Canada, she was recently appointed President of the Women’s Art Society of Montreal.
