I have been a full time artist since my graduation in 1981. The images depicted on my canvas's are all landscape based. At times I use extreme deviations from the landscape to explore the use of line and or form, many times using contrived colour palettes to evoke emotion. The images are always strong and forceful in nature and are accentuated by the large size of the canvases used.
I have traveled extensively across Canada including the Artic. My paintings are recognized as images that depict true Canadian content. Currently my work is in public and private collections in Canada and Europe. On my web site you can see my CV and some different examples of my current work.
