Artist's Statement:

Painting is a part of who I am now. I am inspired by the power and beauty of the Canadian landscape; challenged to capture and share this vision. I have painted in many parts of Canada - the West Coast, the Rockies, the Prairies, Ontario and Eastern Canada.

I paint en plein air with oils on small wood panels while traveling. My set-up is very portable enabling me to hike into many remote areas. Back in the studio, some panels are chosen and worked up into larger canvases.

There has always been a strong tradition of landscape painting in Canada. When I first began painting the Canadian Landscape, I went to Lake O'Hara because of the many paintings I had seen from this area; work by John Singer Sargent, J.E.H. MacDonald, Lauren Harris… just to name a few. Lake O'Hara was spectacular; I have been back 7 times!
