Due to changes to Covid19 restrictions, my paintings can now be seen by visiting my studio. Please email to arrange a visit!
I paint abstract landscapes, simplifying visual reality into fields of rich pure colour, transforming nature into a mysterious place for you, the viewer, to contemplate awhile. I invite you to fill in the details with your own individual experience: where the imagery, mood, and atmosphere of your personal place interacts with the colour and form of the artwork.

Below are the sketches for two new works!
To complement this 'Sea' series I plan to continue working on my more playful 'Beach' paintings. The piece below is an example of one of these...I am having so much fun painting these little people!
This piece is a new take on a painting I had done a couple of years ago. I felt that the original work was too structured and the divisions between sky and land were too abrupt. The sky was not lively enough and the land needed waking up. For interest I will show them both!
The revised painting was accepted into the Oakville Artworks 21st Annual Juried Show . This on-line show runs from April 20 to Dec 31, 2021. A Gallery show is planned for November.
Dundas Valley Art School Auction 2021
This annual event is a fundraiser to support the many art related programs initiated by the DVSA. Due to Covid19 restrictions, this very popular event was again held on-line. The bidding completed in April, and I am so excited that all 4 of my paintings sold!!
But on a more personal level, a client that had purchased 3 0f my works prior to the DVSA purchase of "Prairie Blue", contacted me and stated that the on-line image was not great but she loved my work and was confident that this piece was as lovely as the paintings she had previously purchased. This evoked happy memories of the interactions we have had over the years.
Thank you art lovers for supporting this fundraiser
