As an artist, I enjoy creating original works of art using both innovative and traditional techniques, with a special love for colour and texture. Most of my paintings are created intuitively, and I often use acrylic mediums to build layers of colour to play within the texture. It is this intuitive creative process that enables me to release emotion and wonder and to express myself visually, when words won’t suffice, and when too much careful planning interferes with the creative outflow. If I have an idea that must include planning, then I leave room for discovery and invention.
In my life, I find that I am happiest and more in tune with myself when I am freely able to create; hence, art gives life back to me, and gives me purpose.
Part of that purpose is using art to tell stories visually that others can interpret from similar life experiences. Meaning is in the mind of the artist, as well as with the one viewing the painting.
I am continually inspired by the beauty of the nature that surrounds me within Muskoka.
