About

Fun, whimsical paintings and sculpture that express a love of animals and nature.

I am a Canadian painter living in Windsor, Ontario which is located right beside the Canada/U.S. border. It is a very industrial city. For those times when I felt that I needed more nature I created the Spiral Forest. It resides in my imagination and it is a beautiful place in nature where all sorts of fun, quirky and beautiful animals live and play together. What a wonderful spot this would be to have a little art studio to capture the goings on! You could say then that animals and nature are my muses and passion. Animals evoke a wide range of positive emotions & thoughts in people - joy, love, hope, humour and appreciation of beauty. I love to try to capture these feelings and ideas in my paintings. I am also drawn to the innocence of animals and their natural ability to live in the present moment.

I enjoy working with acrylics and mixed media on canvas and paper. I tend to work in a couple of different methods. In the first I am very faithful to the initial image I had in my mind from the first sketch to the final brush stroke. In the second process I may or may not have an image in mind, but when I head to the canvas I completely create by intuition. The end result is a mystery and often turns out far different then I would have imagined. These types of paintings can take from a few days to a few weeks as they often involve many layers of colour and texture. I am finding that as time goes on I am working much more in this intuitive manner.

I also enjoy working with mixed media sculpture to create different forms of art including ornaments and wall hangings. I love to continue to explore different mediums and to be open to new methods of working to express myself creatively.
