How long have you been a member of Scarborough Arts?

I’ve been a member of Scarborough Arts for several years, but I can’t remember how long! I joined when I felt I could spend more time focusing on my art and because I wanted to meet people across a broad spectrum of the arts, and to give back to the creative community.

What kind of art do you practice, and how long have you been practicing it?

I am a visual artist; a painter. My primary media are watercolour and acrylics. I’ve also worked in oils, pen and ink, and enjoy … Read More »
