Artist Statement

I love the outdoors and the drama of landscapes. I am interested in the play of light across the land and sea. The bold shapes of islands,  rocks and trees have been imprinted on me when I was very young. My main influences have been the Canadian Group of Seven as well as Impressionist Painters and Plein Air from around the world. My goal in painting is to express the excitement I feel from a landscape, using bold brushstrokes and vivid colours. I want to capture the essence of the land in all it's changing moods.
