Shades of blue from sea and sky, the swift current of a river, the textured nuances of fog or snow, scenes from this land or another. The result almost always evokes a landscape and reveals my personal interpretation of it.

My artistic process is intuitive. I apply acrylic paint in numerous coats that superimpose transparently, which usually creates tremendous depth.

I was born in Montreal and have been living in the magnificent Laurentians (Quebec) for fifteen years. Surrounded my mountains and lakes, I’m constantly inspired to interpret this natural splendour that changes with every season.

    I am a wildlife artist. The animals I paint are a very realistic approach. My backgrounds are less so. I often struggle with that part of my painting. I like your colors and way you portray backgrounds. Landscapes are recognizable, yet abstract and vibrant.
