"Having moved to the shores of Georgian Bay from the shores of the Pacific Ocean, the constant in my life is a need to create. Along with tried and true methods and a spirit of the adventurer, I provide opportunity for happy accident and grace to influence my final product.
In my paintings, I choose to take everyday flowers, the humble tulip for example, teapots, vases, plates of fruit and infuse them with iconic status. My subject matter depicts the beauty of the everyday and the majesty of nature’s creations.
The bending White Pines of Georgian Bay, or the roadside Lupines speak to me with their simplicity of form, intricacy of construction, and brilliance of colour. Life catches my attention and calls to be painted. The creamy richness of oils and their saturation of colour make them my medium of choice. I perceive my subjects from an off kilter perspective with an exaggerated sense of design. This joyful, happy–go–lucky view makes me smile."
