I draw inspiration from the ordinary, the everyday, our basic human experience.

My recent work is inspired by the natural world, and captures the energy held within a physical space and also deep within ourselves. These paintings explore the play of light, space and color as metaphor for our (inner) human life experience.  The process of mark making, building layers, and moving paint and canvas around gives life to form.

I am fortunate to live and work on Vancouver Island, surrounded by ocean, old growth forests, changing seasons and rhythms of nature. My work has been displayed across Western Canada in various public and private collections.
