Color moves me, inspires me, feeds me and ignites me. Bold, bright and saturated jewel tones, soft and muted neutrals, earth tones and pastels - they all fill me with joy. And when that happens - when a color lights me up - I just have to paint. I rarely know what will emerge but welcome the process and I have to follow it.
I use acrylic, alcohol ink, pastel, resin, collage, beads and whatever else is close at hand. The only limit is imagination. I paint on canvas and paper mostly. And I love to use palette knives and brushes along with my fingers. Themes do emerge, often influenced by nature, creation and life itself, and become expressive landscapes, impressionistic flowers and even completely abstract pieces.
Colors are powerful and exert their influence even when we are unaware. Whether you prefer show-stopping impact, understated elegance or like to mix it up, they each have their unique place in the grand scheme and of a painting. I wonder what colors you prefer? As you’ll see from my portfolio I truly do love them all.
I appreciate you stopping here for a moment. I hope it brightens your day and brings you some joy. There may even be a painting that sneaks into your heart and would love to find a place in your home or that of family or friend's.

My painting titled "REFLECTIONS" was selected to be featured in the Art a La Carte Exhibit in the Ontario Legislative Building, Queen's Park, Toronto, Canada until Dec 31, 2019.
The painting is displayed, along with other wonderful Ontario artists, in the Quorum Cafe which is open when the House is in Session. Otherwise, you can arrange to tour the building to view it and much more wonderful art and the impressive architecture. For more information about tours and the dates that the House is in Session go to https://www.ola.org.
Standing on a street corner on a rainy night in the city. Lights and traffic, graffiti and grit all reflecting off the puddles. 18/24" acrylic on stretched canvas in a dark float frame.
And here it is.
