I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC and now reside on Vancouver Island where I am fully engaged in the visual arts and painting full time. My work has been acquired by private and corporate owners throughout Canada and the USA.
My representational style of painting allows me to present the subject faithfully while maintaining the feel and look of a painting, rather than a photograph. My approach is to concentrate on the relationship between light & shadow within a strong composition.
I try to capture a specific moment in time, one that recalls a familiar place, memory or feeling. I have spent my life on the Canadian West Coast. The images of the sea, shoreline, mountains and occasionally, boats and buildings, are the ones which inspire me to want to preserve that familiarity on canvas.
