Artist Statement

My art has been described by some as hyper-realism.

Birds, elegant and beautiful, have long captured my imagination. With watercolour and graphite, clean lines and close attention to detail, I work to capture their magic.

I am privileged to live among the fauna and flora of Nova Scotia and I try to impart that through drawings and paintings.
