Painting fulfills my need to record thoughts and feelings in an artistic language, while adding a sensuous element that is fundamental in my work. I use local subject matter to explore universal themes such as solitude and togetherness, loss and preservation, conflict and peace.
After graduating from the Fine Arts program at Ontario College of Art and Design, I continued my studies at the Accademia di belle arti di Firenze in Italy, specializing in drawing and painting the human figure.
My art is essentially figurative, and I am especially passionate about painting people. The human/nature connection is the focus of my recent series of artworks, and is often visually expressed by merging the figure with the natural surroundings. The use of transparent and fluid acrylics on wood allows me to combine my love of watercolour with working large scale. Blending intense detail with unfinished areas, I also like the work process of pencil marks and grid to be visible.
Since living on the shores of Lake Ontario in Prince Edward County, I am captivated by the people, the land and the water. The protection of this new natural environment is the inspiration for my current body of work.See The Work
