I am a visual artist who paints the Canadian landscape from the Rocky Mountains to Cape Scott on the tip of the island. I have been very fortunate to be able to backpack or paddle into remote areas to paint small plein aire studies, collect photographs and experience the land. I then come back to the studio create larger pieces. I paint in watercolour, acrylic and oils enjoying each medium for its versatility. I strive to capture the light as it is often that light that gives a painting its life. I am an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and a director for the Cowichan Valley Arts Council.
