Artist’s Statement

It is my objective as a visual artist to paint and explore contemporary landscapes inspired by and relying on the intuition and tradition of Canadian landscape painting.

My artistic vision lies in the desire to capture and record fleeting moments in time and the effects of natural phenomena against the landscapes as altered by human intervention.   In order to portray this emotion on the canvas, more than just the direct representation of imagery is required.  This stands as the very ideological base behind my drive and approach to painting.
