For me it is painting. As a child, I always enjoyed painting and drawing.
My mother, Margaret Quiring, was a gifted artist and a great influence.
Although I have received no formal art education, numerous artists have
encouraged me at workshops, sharing their ideas and their delight in seeing
the world through an artist's eye.
Of particular interest to me are landscapes, shorelines and
"elderly" buildings. The prairies, where I grew up, and Nova Scotia,
where I lived while teaching at Dalhousie University continue to find their
way onto my canvases.
What finds its way onto the canvas of your life?
