Artist Statement

With each stroke of the brush,
my attention wanders
between technique and intuition.
The eyes see,
the subconscious takes reign,
and the hands will paint.


I am a dedicated plein air & studio oil painter & instructor with an associate membership in Oil painters of America, a member of The Federation of Canadian Artists and the founder of PleinAirBC.com.
