Reflective pools of clean, cold water surrounded by mossy rocks, turning leaves, tree roots, overhanging plants and flowers are often reflected in my paintings themes.  Creating art is just a way to restate and release the beauty I have encountered on this journey through life.  All my painting's themes, from flowers in my back garden to morning light on a lake in the Canadian Shield, rise from moments on my journey with friends and family. I imagine those who are drawn to my art share similar memories of beauty from their journeys as well.

 

I paint with DYE on SILK which is a very challenging yet rewarding medium. The final steam set colours  are crisp and vibrant but the flowing dye is difficult to control and many things can go wrong during the process. Patience and planning are essential and I limit my production to keep it fun and interesting. My work is represented in public and private collections both locally and abroad
