Artist Statement

The beautiful forms and patterns found in the vast Canadian wilderness have always fascinated me. Using ink and watercolour on paper is my go-to method for interpreting the landscape. I use this medium in a way that exaggerates the shapes and movement that I see around me. I like to find an aesthetic balance between structured and organic forms, between what occurs naturally and what is manufactured.

My goal is to share through art my experience and interpretation of the land. I have lived and worked in Northern Ontario, Newfoundland, Alberta, and British Columbia and I am always astounded at the immensity and diversity of Canada. Drawing and painting the wonders I see is my way of connecting with the land and also with its people.
