"From the mind to the heart to the hand...
The moment an idea sparks in the mind it flows gently or furiously from the mind to the heart, where it is captured and turned into a moment in time. The results leap from the hand to mix around colours ... glorious colours. Then comes the critical moment when brush touches canvas and your idea lights the canvas on fire. Original Canadian Art for you, for your home, for your history.” SDL 2016
