Artist Statement

Through my painting, I am attempting to express, in a personal way, my reaction to the landscape in which I live. It is my hope that each painting captures a bit of the visual excitement, at times dramatic but more often of a quiet, pastoral nature which abounds in rural Nova Scotia. The old homesteads, wooden barns, uncluttered vistas and twisting country roads are a dwindling resource along the eastern seaboard of our continent.

My ambition is to apply color to my paint surface in the spontaneous and immediate fashion to convey and amplify the impact of the landscape and share this experience with the viewer. You must use expressive color and break borders. It is the breath of life and it takes a lifetime to master.
