Painting is my passion…..

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world around me and love interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by books I’ve read, including famous authors and poets from the past…
Sometimes I am moved to write short stories and poems to better illustrate my point of view, but in fact the works can stand entirely on their own

Over the years, I have taught art at the college level and privately in the studio, and I have been a frequent contributor to Canada’s premier design and art magazines.
My television appearances include several popular decorating shows, my work has been featured in numerous publications, and can also be found in many private homes around the city

The Tyranny of Drawing..

Quote: “Did you ever stop to realize how drawing holds up brushwork? When work is prepared with a drawing, simple or complex, there’s the tendency to work around the lines and cave in to the drawing. / This can be an effective way to go, of course, but for a lot of us drawing is a tyranny which impedes freshness and spontaneity. / The virus of overwork easily eats away if there are lines …

Blank Brains...

“I have cycles, though it took me a long time realize that and even longer to understand how they worked. There are periods of painting that seems successful beyond my capabilities. When one painting leads to another which leads to another, and I can do no wrong. When inspiration walks with me, when even the simplest things have deep meaning. / Then there are periods of just work. ThatR…
