I grew up in the Kawartha Lakes Region of Southern Ontario. Living in cottage country I gained an appreciation for the Canadian wilderness at an early age. My love of landscape, lead me to the western shores of Lake Superior where I attended Lakehead University and was trained as a printmaker focusing on block printing. After graduating with an Honours Bachelors of Fine Art degree, I moved west and began painting in Fernie BC. It is in this picturesque mountain town, that I have been living and working for the past eleven years.
With my use of smooth swirling line, dramatic light and form my work focuses on the rhythm of the natural world and my place within it. In doing so a spirit of exploration and adventure dominates my paintings and reflects an outdoor based lifestyle which is ingrained in Canadian culture.
My work can be seen throughout the Kootenays and Western Canada. Whether you require a quality original painting or print, or wish to inquire about a commissioned work you are invited to contact me through Art on 9th.
