After many years working in the design field, I began painting seriously in 2001 enrolling in a painting program at ACAD. I attended classes for several years and continue with the life long process of learning with ongoing workshops.
I paint primarily in oil and would describe my work as impressions of nature inspired by a direct response to my world. When painting, I attempt to infuse the canvas with the energy I feel from my subject. I let the work evolve using colour to express light, illustrate perspective, represent mass and evoke mood.
Growing up in Eastern Canada, relocating to Alberta and finally moving to beautiful British Columbia, has offered me the great opportunity to appreciate the varied beauty of the Canadian landscape. I am inspired by the French Impressionists as well as several members of the Group of Seven and Tom Thomson and their ability to distill the Canadian essence.
I'm an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists, the Calgary Artists' Society, the Federation of Canadian Artists and the Alberta Society of Artists.
