Painting The Landscape
Born on the Canadian Prairies, I attained my Master of Fine Arts from the University of Windsor, Canada. After teaching and travelling around a bit, I moved to Devon in 1999 and found my new home.
I respond to the transient effects of the colour, light and atmosphere that surrounds me. I strive to work intuitively and without pre-conception, allowing one stroke to lead to the next until an image asserts itself. These are my versions of the natural, the imagined, the misremembered landscape.
Paintings are primarily acrylic paint and mixed media: coloured pencil, soft pastel, oil pastel, charcoal, graphite, watercolour, wax, dry and metallic pigments.
