After spending 25+ yrs working in retail management, tired of the constant stress and anxiety, for the last 4 yrs I made the commitment to focus full time on creating art and photography. This life change has helped me so much to really get in touch with myself and to understand life's priorities. Recently I left my city life in Vancouver, BC behind and returned to the Maritimes to be near my family and oldest friends. I was fortunate enough to find a perfect home for me and my 2 Bengal cats surrounded by nature with water views. I fell in love with my house the moment I saw it and could see the amazing potential it had to be my dream home. With it's cathedral ceilings and open concept, I felt like I could finally breathe. Although it was a tough 6 months of renovations, I love that I was able to put so much character into every room just how I envisioned. And with going from 825 sq ft of living to now 4000 sq ft, it meant I have the room to open my own art class lounge within my residence. You can find my painting classes as an Air BnB Experience for The Creation Lounge. I decided that this space is too special to be kept all to me and needs to be shared with others who appreciate tasteful design and natural beauty! So my Retreat on Thompson's Pond is now open to the Air BnB world on a PT basis! I am really looking forward to meeting people from all over who are coming to experience everything Nova Scotia has to offer.
