Artist Statement

In year 2000, I left my “real job” to pursue my art on a fulltime basis. Although it’s been a roller coaster with regards to income, I’ve never regretted this decision.

I am a painter who works primarily in acrylics. I do detail representational paintings inspired by the Maritimes – the people, places and wildlife. Through glazing techniques, I achieve a luminosity and depth of color that give warmth and light to my subjects. I find inspiration in often the simplest of things -when the light is hitting something quite ordinary to create something absolutely extraordinary, even if only for a fleeting moment. My goal is to capture these moments on canvas.
