Behind the Brush
Artist / Winnipeg, Canada
ART FOR EVERY ROOM
I love to create semi-representational landscape and flower paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolour that use expressive colour and light … sprinkled with a touch of whimsy.
I have always been an admirer of the brushstrokes and techniques of Chinese/Japanese art and will often incorporate some line work influenced by those cultures.
Growing up on the Canadian prairies and having a family cottage in Lake of the Woods, Ontario, has provided me with landscapes that offer a kaleidoscope of colours and amazing light to provide never ending inspiration. This home turf coupled by some pretty amazing world trips have become my painting catalogue.

A PAINTER'S OASIS
I spend about 4 to 5 months a year painting in my She-Shed on Mackie’s Island near Kenora. It’s my favorite place in the world.
