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 consider myself a semi-representational contemporary art painter.   What that means is....if I paint a'll know its a may be a purple and yellow tree but you'll know its a tree!   I don't see myself ever competing with a camera and am far more interested in evoking a mood....often light-hearted and whimsical.

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.  I spend about 4  months a year painting in my She-Shed on Mackie's Island near Kenora.  It's my favorite place in the world...I have posted a few pics below.
