I am a contemporary Canadian painter and art instructor based in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia. I work primarily as an oil painter and am known for soft plein air landscapes, modern still lifes, and portraiture. I enjoy how light, shadow, and colour temperature form the fundamental elements of a scene with my goal of blending representation with Impressionistic aesthetics.
