My landscapes convey an impression of place by emphasizing form, colour and light. Paintings are windows that open to life and memory. My paintings strive to encompass in gesture the natural world especially through the changing light of day.
Working primarily in oils, my style loosely represents my impressions of nature through the seasons.
I strive to convey my memory of place, influenced by field sketches and smaller paintings, translated into larger pieces in my Hamilton studio. In the studio, I allow the underpainting-the tonality- to come through. I am working to evoke from memory my impressions of a remote shore, autumn brilliance or the sudden darkening of a sky.
Studio training began through electives taken at the University of Guelph in 1981 and have continued over the last 40 years including the London Polytechnic, U.K., OCAD University, Emily Carr University of Art & Design (ECUAD) and more recently Dundas Valley School of Art (DVSA).
Landscape has meaning. Rivers reflect, clouds portend. Significance is there to be discovered, inherent and ascribed, shaped by what senses perceive, what instinct and experience read as significant, what minds know.
