"My fascination with art started as a young child. It has now become a passion to express my emotions through my art.


 As far back as I can remember, I have always been drawing or painting. While painting, I feel fortunate and grateful to be able to spend my time doing something I love. I lose myself in the colours, textures and emotions each piece generates. My subject matter varies and my paintings are a combination of realism, impressionism and usually non specific. Beginning with a textured canvas and no preconceived plan, I experiment with shapes, inks, textures, bright colours and collage, which adds contrast and interest. I let the paint guide me and I encounter many surprises along the way. I am always striving to accomplish something new and exciting and it is always my hope that the viewer will pause and enjoy my work."

Artist Statement

"While painting, time stands still. I lose myself in the colour, textures and the emotion each piece generates. Beginning with no definite pre-conceived plan or expectation, I let the paint guide me. I may introduce ink or collage to add contrast, balance, texture and interest. Hopefully I will pass on to the viewer a feeling of excitement and pleasure."
