I've always been fascinated by the NATURAL WORLD and since my earliest years, I would venture out into the forest to study its ways. The changing of the seasons, the diversity of plant life, the ever changing light effects and the abundance of nature would become my obsession. Painting and drawing was the best way I knew how to communicate what I was learning to the world.
To truly learn the art of painting and not drawing with your paintbrush is a lifelong pursuit. I look forward to the challenges and pushing myself to better my last painting. I fully intend to expand content and my geographical range, but along my way, I will continue to paint the Canadian landscape, where I have been and what I know best.
