As an artist I want to meld and intersect the spiritual with the landscape we live in; to incorporate faith and its impact on art by illumination and light-filled canvases. My inspiration is from the Canadian Group of Seven, particularly Lawren Harris’ middle period and his desire to enlighten, uplift and edify. Art is a way for the soul to reach out and touch the immortal; to catch a fleeting glimpse of God.
My subject is the ever changing Canadian landscape and the striving of the soul to make sense of the world. My medium and materials are; a gessoed canvas, a loaded brush, a keyed up colour pallette, and applying the paint while watching and waiting. Art is a form of communication for me; communication between heaven and earth.
“Art is the beginning of vision into the realm of eternal life.” Lawren Harris
