I reside in Calgary, Alberta with my family and am a frequent visitor to the mountains to the west of us, and the Crowsnest Pass area to the south. An avid hiker and explorer of gardens, I try to capture my love and unique view of the outdoors through the lens of a camera. I translate a moment of time for a viewer to explore at their leisure. I also enjoy using any kind of implement with which to apply paint, such as scrapers, knives, razor blades and fingers. My paintings vacillate between tightly constructed to fairly abstract. I always hope for viewers to connect with my art on some level- a memory, an emotion, a familiar place.
Mostly self-taught, I participated in several art workshops and enjoy working with and learning from fellow artists. I currently show with Art Horizons and Calyx Distinctive Arts in Calgary. I am an associate member (former full member) with Riverview Art Group, and a former member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.
