I walk on the winter beach
from here to there
and beyond where the beach ends…
Past indifferent sea gulls,
over beached kelps,
over bleached sea shells,
to the sound of crushing waves,
to the call of ebbing memories…
I walk on the winter beach
I shall go
I must go
Beyond where the beach ends
… Suchoon Mo…On the Winter Beach..

Music by Suchoon Mo

There is a part of Toronto called “The Beaches”…
I took lots of liberty with this beautiful area of the city and added land on the other side….land that you can see, making it a much more intimate scene…in truth, although it’s right down town it’s huge….here it is sundown in winter…also known as “The Beach” it is a neighbourhood and popular tourist destination, stretching for miles on the shores of Lake Ontario

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 interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..
