About Me


When I took my first oil painting course I knew nothing at all about art, painting, fine art or multi-media art. I gradually added to my arsenal and in the process I learned about what I liked and what I did not like. I still love to learn and practice new skills in the art and creative areas.

Fern currently belongs to the Foothills Art Club in Cochrane and works in oils, watercolours, pen and ink. She has been a hobby artist most of her adult life. Motivated by learning new methods she utilizes one-of-a-kind processes, including design and experimentation and considers it a privilege to practice whatever catches her eye. With such eclectic scanner type interests it is hard to depict a single practice. If anything she has adopted an abstract-reality style.

She practices multi-media and digital art forms as well as fine art.

She believes in blurring the edges between art, nature, spirituality and relationships. Her current focus tends to be on abstract figures and portraits. Examples on this site show her style.

Fern is a joyful creator and teller of truth. She researches and provides information about creative writing if asked.

She loves to design for others, sell her art cards and collaborate in teamwork initiatives with blog writing, websites or Photoshop creation.

In tough economic times, contemporary art as an investment seems rather recession-proof and, in fact, often times outperforms the stock market. Knowing the artist’s potential will help. Research is important before a purchase. Check out this link regarding contemporary art investments!
