There is a strong emphasis on colour, texture, line and composition in her work. After spending a part of her childhood in the Maritimes and the West Indies she developed a love of travel. Like many artists her work has been enriched by these experiences. She combines a knowledge of art history with the artistic expression of non-western cultures that are rich in iconography, pattern and textures.
