I am fortunate to live and work in the beautiful Fraser Valley in British Columbia. It is here where I have been quietly painting for the past several years.
Over time I have come to realize how much the countryside that surrounds my home has contributed to the part of me that is the artist.
Nature's colors are the greatest influence on my work.
Working with oil paints and larger brushes, I begin laying in a unified composition of shapes and values. I mix my colors on the surface as the painting progresses. I focus on making every stroke count while striving to maintain a sense of spontaneity and authenticity.
The studio is my place for solitude. However, I want to create paintings in which the viewers can participate. The more they look at them the more I hope they see.
I feel that my commitment as a painter is to my creative process and to making art that shows my enthusiasm and passion for the magic and beauty of the materials.
If you are interested in viewing my work or knowing more, I invite you to contact me.
