WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE!

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  70% abstract representational painter.   What that means is....if I paint a tree...you'll know its a tree...it 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.

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.

 

The other 30% is an entirely different aesthetic involving brush work and rice paper!  I can't remember a time when I haven't loved flowers and Asian influences!   I am drawn to beautiful colours and even in my landscapes - I will often add in line work that is often found in Chinese and Japanese art.
