Through my painting, I find the courage to let go of intentions, to break rules, and discover new techniques. With each piece, I am captured by the luminous colours of inks, which seem to bloom and roam luxuriously on Yupo paper.
I am motivated by working through a unique process for each ink painting. Often, my paintings grow organically, however, the idea is usually well thought out. My subjects can be a simple emotion, a memory, a loose Canadian seascape, or a landscape.
I strive to achieve work that is evocative, meditative, and can provoke emotion. I believe I am successful when I can achieve painterly beauty. Those artists that are brave in their intentions and technique inspire me the most, as do the ever changing colours of our beautiful country’s panorama.
