I am an artist from Western Canada. My path in the fine arts has led me to a unique expression of mood and color through collage and mixed media. I’ve explored numerous forms of art and craft: painting in watercolor and oils, sculpture and pottery.
Since graduating with a degree in Art Education from the University of Alberta, I have worked as an art teacher in Alberta and British Columbia, and in restoration at the Royal Ontario Museum.
My artwork has appeared in juried exhibits and galleries in Canada, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Crete, the United States New Zealand and Switzerland, and I have won numerous awards in online galleries.
I have throughout my adult life occasionally lived in altered perceptual states. My art is an effort to recapture the vivid nature of these encounters. I am an explorer in the realms of color and texture. I am continually modifying techniques to express new ideas.
I consider myself an explorer of new techniques and materials, always evolving in my quest to experiment with new forms of mixed media expression.
The main focus of my work is the perspective of color and textures, with the objective of giving the viewer an interesting pattern of detail up close and at the same time presenting a seemingly complete image at a distance.
