Nature has always had a special place in my heart, as do animals. I seek to express the emotional relationship we have with nature and animals. They are a constant inspiration for me and the source for much of my work. I have always loved photography, and so living on an island, I am always finding inspiration. I often sketch, to roughly work out an idea for a painting, and then work directly onto a canvas, either from the charcoal sketches or from my own photos. Painting allows me time each day to pause and reflect on what is most meaningful to me. Often I will have a fleeting thought, from a walk or a dream that will bring me further insight for a painting. The land and the sea inspire me to first create a narrative, or story if you will, in paint. They capture a time and place, a memory that is both personal but familiar. I like to think that I create moods, in painting the beauty of what I feel for so deeply. It is the true spirit of my work. I paint from my studio/gallery on Bowen Island, BC.
