“I started painting at an early age. Many hundreds of hours were spent in the Northern Ontario forests researching, sketching, photographing and painting my subjects. A considerable amount of my childhood was also spent in Nova Scotia where I developed a love for the sea and the Maritime way of life.
My previous work was based on close studies of trees, their many textures, moods and the effects of the various seasons upon them. I developed a great love and respect for nature and painstakingly applied paint to canvas to capture a startling realism and a boldness of colour and texture. My landscapes show the wonderfully varied beauty of the Canadian land.
My paintings can be found enhancing numerous collections by both private and corporate collectors throughout Ontario, across Canada, the United States, England, Germany and China.
My paintings operate on many levels involving form, colour and, place. They aim to visibly document my thoughts and try to express my vision, pulling the viewer into another world.”
