Artist's Statement.

 The Artist

“Qu’est-ce que l’art?”

Ce par quoi les formes deviennent style



My style could be described as free spirit with a whisper of detail. It is intentionally loose and fragmented, creative in colour with rich, varied layers of pigment and the occasional splash of iridescent powder.

Painting is a reflection of my emotion and an attempt to capture a moment of beauty.

I like the vastness of sky in my landscapes, the coloured spectra of my abstractions and the reference to nature which surrounds us everywhere.



My youth and formative years were spent on the Great Lakes and ever since I have favoured a palette of Huron Blue in my paintings.

I studied Art History and French at The University of Toronto, visual art at the Emily Carr College of Art and Design, and French Literature at L”Universite de Poitiers, France .

I lived in France and the Orient. I paint around Howe Sound and the Cariboo.
