Artist’s Statement

My inspiration comes mostly from the natural world around me – the unique character of a Jack Pine, the twisted weave of tree roots in the forest, the brilliant colours of a sunset on one of our pristine lakes or the portrait of wildlife in their natural habitat. I focus on images that deliver a message about our corporate responsibility to care for Mother Earth and her abundant life. To that end a portion of sales of all my artwork goes directly to Aspen Valley Wildlife Sanctuary to support their rehabilitation work in Muskoka.”

Most often my creative process begins by capturing an image with my camera. Then I crop the picture and possibly integrate others to develop a composition for the actual painting. Once brush and paint touch the paper or canvas, time loses all meaning. Watching the blank surface transform into a painting often seems magical, as if the paints and brushes are pulling up images hidden in the fibres.

I work in a variety of mediums – acrylic, oil, watercolour, Chinese and acrylic inks as well as mixed media. Each one offers unique qualities and allows me the freedom to select what I feel best interprets a subject.
