“ To simplify, to focus, 
to balance the seen with the unseen, 
to capture the spirit, heart & soul… 
the painting’s reason for being.”

.  . Artist Statement .  . 
“I have always been drawn to the arts and the outdoors. My background is in Commercial Art as well as Fine Art, so I am familiar with most mediums, but especially love watercolour. I am inspired by the rugged beauty of the Maritimes and the people who reside here.  Art and the act of its creation have provided me with numerous gifts and insights, which have enriched my life immeasurably.
My hope is that by sharing my work and passion, it will do the same for others.”
