About My Work

Among my favorite childhood memories is a birdseye view of kitchen events. Before central heating became popular, the kitchen stove was the main source of heat in Newfoundland homes. A hole was cut in the kitchen ceiling to let the heat rise to the bedroom.

I can still hear my mother admonish, “Anne, get away from the hole and into bed.” From this memory came the idea for my first painting “Balcony View” which become the basis for the cover of the book, “Stories from the Hole in the Ceiling.”
