My paintings simply represent my passion for the natural world seen through my eyes. For me, its all about light and how it interacts with colour and form in the environment. I usually paint or am inspired by real locations, areas that I feel connected to. Although I have travelled throughout Canada, it is Ontario, my home, that I have the greatest affinity for. My paintings are often based on the local landscapes of rolling hills, marshes and woodlands to the rocky Canadian shield and white pine studded shorelines of the northern lakes.
