Roberta has been a primarily self-taught artist since childhood. She began with watercolours and through the years started experimenting with various mediums including acrylic, watercolours, textile design, illustration and digital arts, eventually settling into mixed media. In 2010 she was selected by jury by the Maison des Artistes and Heritage Canada for a collaborative Public Art Installation The Storybook Garden, which hangs in the Library Allard in Saint Georges MB. In 2012 she began working in schools across Southeastern Manitoba and Winnipeg doing integrated arts programming through the MAC ArtsSmarts programs and as well as grant programs through Heritage Canada. She has worked with several schools with students ranging from kindergarten to grade 12 as well as doing professional development with educators. She graduated in 2014 from the Community Collaborative Arts Coordinator Program through ACI Manitoba.
