I am blessed to live the life of a painter.

My work is not at all difficult to understand. It is merely an ongoing exploration of that which I find beautiful, from the everyday to the extraordinary.

What really drives me to the easel is my love of rendering light. Backlight, cast shadows, bounced light – it is all mesmerizing. I enjoy the other elements present in the visual field, those of color and design etc., but the light hooks me every time.

In addition to doing my larger studio paintings, I very much enjoy painting on site, and have been privileged to do a fair amount of traveling and painting in the last number of years. I also enjoy doing small studies of the still life and the model in my studio during our long Canadian winters.

To balance the solitude of my life as a painter, I find a great deal of fulfillment paying forward the skills my mentors have passed on to me to my students. What a joy. I have gotten to meet some really amazing folks through the years.

I have been honoured to receive Senior Signature Status with the Federation of Canadian Artists; Master Pastellist designation through the Pastel Artists and Canada; signature status with the Artists for Conservation, active membership of the Oil Painters of America. All of these organizations have helped me strive for excellence in my journey as a painter.
