Director's Biography

Authenticity, humour and love are my mantras. I've lead an eclectic life which is expressed in my art. Acting, music and writing have converged at various times in my life. One of my favourite roles was Ursula, the lead in the award-winning film " Her Decision', directed by Glen Salzman and have toured Greece the role of Andromache (The Trojan Women).
As a writer, I was an arts columnist for Montreal's Free Press paper (1999-2016) and was an internationally published journalist. I have written eight children's books, including "Les 5 Sens en Folie" which won a Mr. Christie nomination. My published novel, "Floating on Lily Pads" was launched in Mexico and Greece. I was honoured to be interviewed on CBC radio and on other media about my poetry.short story collection, "Beyond the Dream: Epic Solitude".
As a singer-songwriter with 3 CDs out, my anti-bullying song, "Be You" was given a special performance during l concert for young adults at Ontario Place in Toronto. I love to create; my imagination never stops. TAPPING TANGO is my first venture into animation film. Typical to my personality, it's funny. I hope it brings laughter to all who watch it.

Director's Statement

TAPPING TANGO is my first animation short. I was inspired to create this film inside a Montreal metro station. Two payphones supported on "legs" stimulated my imagination. I envisioned these phones as live characters. Meet Henry and Abigail - a charming duo who tap dance and tango their way into love.
