Title: Good and Evil
"Much of Literature and Storytelling is about the struggle between Good and Evil. Beauty is often an expression of this tension. My art expresses these realities and the conflict that they can provoke.
I knew as a very young girl going to private school in Montreal that all I wanted to be was an artist. At the age of 18, I was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and for many years I suffered from psychosis, insanity and homelessness.
Now, in my 50’s, I have come to terms with my illness and I have learned how to manage things so my life is livable. On a very personal level, my art has helped me work out much of my inner angst and as a result I have managed to turn my suffering into peace.
Through my art I hope to bring a little peace and healing to the world".
