Liane is a self-taught artist and it was certainly a gift for her to discover her passion for painting in 2006, when her retirement needed some perking up.

For many years, she enjoyed Stained Glass Painting and Tole Painting.  Since then, she’s dabbled in oils and watercolors but her main love is acrylics.  She is a realist painter and fusses over details but enjoys every minute of it. 

In 2009, she experimented with children’s portraits, which lead her to: adult portraits, animals and birds.  Teaching painting for the past few years has been most enjoyable for her and she looks forward to having many more students in the future.

Her history as an artist is short but it has been most rewarding. Painting has become her passion and, 135 paintings later, she still gets excited when facing a blank canvas and a brand new project.
