Darlene grew up in Montreal and received her B.F.A. (major in Graphic Design), degree from Sir George Williams University, now known as Concordia University. She went on to pursue a career in business.

While she has been painting sporadically over the years, recently she has decided to devote a full time focus to her art work. Her works are predominately acrylic and mixed media.

Darlene attempts to involve the audience, through use of dimension and texture. To have you want to touch and experience what is happening on the canvas. To pause. To reflect.

Her paintings are held by private collectors in Ontario, Quebec, and the USA. She is currently represented by Rupert Young.
