Canadian Landscape Artist

Statement

  • I am inspired by the shapes and patterns found in nature, the reflections in water, colour and light. I use the natural abstraction in nature for inspiration and then add to it, enhance it.  It is my impression of the landscape.

    These paintings are from very familiar places, so there is also an emotional element to them. Painting for me is a very intimate relationship where process is the driving force. Every painting has a personality of its own that I want to communicate to the viewer.

    I take many photos while hiking, kayaking and walking. These photos are my reference materials for future paintings. Part of the process is being out in nature and taking pictures that eventually translate into paintings.
