Artist Statement:

My goal as an artist is to create paintings that are representational, but also stand on their own merit as works of art. I strive to capture forces of nature, particularly the sky and the clouds, and inspire feelings of humility and awe. Fusing emotion and passion into my work, I consciously divert from realism by manipulating color and texture to create dynamic impressions of the Ontario landscape. I’m proud to align my work with the incredible Canadian artists that came before me. While my work is clearly influenced by the Group of Seven and Tom Thompson, I apply my own style and sensibility while sharing their appreciation of Canada’s many natural treasures.
