Cecilia started painting in Calgary in 1990, when she was enrolled in a weekend workshop by her employer. Being a painter had never crossed her mind, but she attended, really wishing she was somewhere else. That attitude changed when she took home two respectable canvases. A new door had opened! Since then she has continued learning about art at home, taken credit courses at the Alberta College of Art, and workshops with artists Liz Wiltzen,and Jerry Markham.

She has lived and exhibited in the Windermere Valley, Cochrane, and Revelstoke. Revelstoke is now home. Her collectors are from the Bahamas, Germany, New Zealand, Scotland, Switzerland, the United States, and Canada.

Career accomplishments include teaching beginners painting classes, seeing some of those students become competent artists, doing a front cover painting for a book (Mountain Odyssey), published by Heritage Publishing, and being chosen to do a mural for BC Hydro.
