Bold lines and vibrant colours define my paintings which explore marine geography and delight in the tumbling array of nautical objects I observe on the sea and in marinas. My work can also be contemplative and textural as I explore the great ocean and its horizons.
My style is semi-abstract. Acrylics, oil and cold wax are my mediums of choice and I use a variety of scrapers, palette knives and mark making tools to create my impressions.
Having found my passion for art early in life I pursued and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts, graduating in 1981 from the University of Victoria. It wasn’t until 2007, after years of living abroad and raising our two children, that I returned to painting full time. I happily paint every day.
