I am a self taught artist who enjoys working in acrylics and oils, and am inspired by the natural environment as well as people. I mostly choose to paint landscapes, trees, florals and animals.
Intrigued by what goes on in an animal I often choose to present them as portraits. Alberta is blessed with a multitude of gorgeous critters and breathtaking landscapes which I love to explore in every season of the year. I cannot go outside without being intrigued by the beauty surrounding us and showing itself in so many different ways. The way the light hits and creates a special atmosphere not only in large areas but also in tiny little niches captivates me. I am mesmerized by it.
My style can be defined as a kind of graphic realism. I enjoy exaggerating on the brightness of colour to produce a cheerful image. I hope to make people smile,not take things too seriously and to enjoy life.
Besides several local shows, I presented work at the Calgary Stampede Wall Art Sale in 2013 and 2015 and the Calgary Stampede Art Gallery and Venture Art Gallery in 2016 and in the Calgary Stampede Art Gallery 2017.
