Artist Statement

I have a profound love of nature, so almost all my work in some form is a reflection of my experiences when I am out hiking or kayaking. Sometimes I want to capture the minutiae in intimate detail, – the textures, colours, and patterns; and sometimes I want a more spatial panoramic sweep that captures the changing seasons. I am lucky to live in the Crowsnest Pass where I have an abundance of nature out my back door. Birds, flowers, plants, animals, insects have all been the subject of my focus for art and continue to inspire.
