Artist's Statement:

When people ask me what I paint, I am a bit at a loss, because the subject matter and medium varies with each work and is usually just something that catches my fancy. Using both color and line, I try to inspire the mood that captured my interest. I love the magical effects of watercolors when I allow the paints to do their own thing; the versatility of acrylics; and, pastels because of their immediacy and because they allow me more freedom of expression.  In 2015 I started working in Chinese Freestyle Brush Painting, a medium much more difficult to master than the simplicity of the artwork implies.  I have built on this in 2016, using ink, gouache, or a combination of both on a variety of specialty papers.  Recently, I have also been working on a fun series of paintings I call my Paul Klee Challenge, where I randomly chose one of his works and used it as an inspiration (sometimes obvious; sometimes, less so) for one of my own. 


Born in Nova Scotia, I have been a west coast resident since 1980 and currently live in Coquitlam, BC. I received my Fine Arts diploma from Langara College in 1997. 


I have exhibited at the following locations: Langara College; Art in The Park in Maple Ridge; the Lower Mainland Dog Show in Abbottsford; gARTen Tour and the Poirier branch of the Public Library in Coquitlam; City Hall and the Office of the Mayor, Martha's Restaurant, the Terry Fox Library, and with the Art Focus Artists' Association in Port Coquitlam; and the Port Moody Art Association. I have also exhibited as a member of 5 At Play, a group of five artists who paint collaboratively and simultaneously on paintings in a variety of subject matter. My paintings are in private collections in Canada; Germany; Taiwan; Hong Kong; and Doha, Qatar.
