Hello, so glad you are here! Please check out my art galleries to view my selection of original watercolour and acrylic paintings available for purchase, I also have tiny miniature paintings that come with their own wooden easel.
Please be sure to read my weekly art blogs here too! They are chock full of my art tips, techniques, insights and travels so come see where my adventures have taken me. I enjoy sharing what I am painting with you and I often show the steps I take to achieve my finished product. So please join me here.
I’ve been having a blast painting new work in a range of styles and genres. I love working with colour and I’m intrigued with all the effects I can achieve. My roots are in illustration so much of my work is based on using strong design elements. My favourite mediums to work in are watercolours and acrylics, but I also create paintings in mixed media adding inks, crayons, markers and pastels with some collage work too.
In each painting approach I often use an entirely different painting style always aiming at having the end result be full of energy and impact. Whether it’s my lakeside woodland landscapes, stylized tropical fish, fanciful flowers or dynamic abstracts each painting is filled with layers of brilliant colour. My various painting materials and methods are a challenge and a joy to do which I have also loved sharing during my workshops so that my students can enjoy the experience too.
My travels have taken me to some of the most gorgeous scenery to paint from. I often head out to rustic conservation areas to paint their forests and shorelines on location. Some places are as close as my back door others a day’s journey way up in northern Ontario’s bear country. Some of my art adventures take me all the way to Phoenix Arizona where I revel in the heat and the scenery of it’s cacti laced mountains and endless desert vistas.
I have been part of many fabulous local artist communities. I have participated in multiple art groups, exhibited in numerous art shows throughout Ontario and have been a proud member of the artisans’ art cooperative Artisans’ Attic, that is decades old! These events help to stoke my creativity which in turn enhance my productivity. Happily my art career has grown and bloomed. Thank you for coming to my website, looking forward to hearing from you!
