About My Work

I paint in my studio and I paint en plein air. These 2 ways of working influence each other greatly. I take the energy and quick observation from working outdoors and try to keep that momentum when I am working in the studio.

I am inspired by the relationship of our urban and natural settings. It is usually something pretty simple that influences any series I work on. 

A recent painting trip to the Shetlands has reminded me of the power of nature.

Flowers in my garden had me working on the relationships of colour and shape.

My 3-Tree Mixed Landscapes involves overlapping themes of rural, urban and landscape imagery to create images in layers.

I have painted boats after a one month residency in Newfoundland. 

I have painted a rural series influenced by many trips to my grandparents farm in Southwestern Ontario. 

I have turned these rural images with old family photos into a series of board games with a nostalgic take. 

I have painted a series with a female theme for a show I was invited to in Prague, Czech Republic.

 

Please visit my painting galleries to see selected pieces from all of these pursuits.
