Living in Victoria on Vancouver Island, I enjoy plein air painting in all seasons and being outside in nature. Capturing the freshness and impression of a scene plein air is most important to me and is the foundation of my studio work.
Painting outside is an excuse for me to be there, in a forest, a garden or at the ocean. I capture the essence of a scene with oil paint and cold wax, using expressive marks leaning towards abstraction. I also create larger works in the studio with acrylic, collage and oil.
