Statement

Discovery – be it subject matter, design, or materials and where it leads – is why I do this work. Regardless of the painting concerns below, I try to maintain some of the visual experiences and ideas that catch my sense of awe and other intangibles. It is my hope that these are passed on to the viewer.Objects and figures are largely represented and there is a story aspect to my work, but I try to limit perspective illusion. (Although, I do wander off this path when seduced by nature.) At the same time I want to maintain the modeling of form; closer in some respects to pre-renaissance paintings. I think line, shape, colour and texture can be emphasized more with this approach while still working via realism.I formally studied studio painting,, drawing, graphics, printmaking and art history, at Sir George Williams University (Concordia ). I am an elected member of The Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour and  a Fellow of The Ottawa Watercolour Society. I have shown at several galleries in Toronto, Montreal, Brampton and Eastern Ontario. My works are in private, and institutional collections across Canada and elsewhere.
