Canadian born painter, carver, creative, I’m best known for my impressionist paintings where I capture elements of nature, city and human character in a unique, spontaneous and animated style.
Using pencil, ink and watercolour, I paint a variety of subjects ranging from the patriotic, to urban scenes, to the seas, to my own beloved home in the country.
Reflecting my playfulness, I often add little characters to my work that put a smile on my face. I have so much fun adding these little characters that I’m sure when someone watches me sketch they must wonder what I’m laughing about. Then when someone views my art, I hope it puts a smile on their face and brings them a sense of peace.
I cherish when my art evokes discussion about its meaning and delights in knowing that my work resides in the homes of fans and art enthusiasts across the world. I believe in the adage ‘… it’s not necessary to understand art, it’s simply necessary to love it.’
