Artist Statement 
In year 2000 I left my “real job” to pursue my art on a full time basis. Although it’s been a roller coaster with regards to income, I’ve never regretted this decision. 
I am a painter working primarily in acrylics. I do detailed representational paintings inspired by the Maritimes – the people, places and wildlife. Through glazing techniques I achieve a  luminosity and depth of color that give warmth and light to my subjects. I find inspiration in often the simplest of things -when the light is hitting something quite ordinary to create something absolutely extraordinary, even if only for a fleeting moment. My goal is to capture these moments on canvas. 

I also love to do commissioned paintings, whether it be a pet portrait, homestead or other subject.  I enjoy the challenge of creating something meaningful for clients.  Some of my works have been shipped as far as Australia and Japan, as well as  Europe and throughout Canada & the U.S.

I have been fortunate to have my work represented by several private galleries. I’ve been delighted to have been offered solo shows every year commencing 2011 in a variety of private venues throughout Nova Scotia.
