My paintings express a deeply rooted familial connection to the Canadian countryside. Mountains, rivers, hills, valleys, forests, farmland — I love them all!
Visual complexity is distilled into carefully choreographed simplicity. Shapes, surface textures, and a limited palette are combined with a powerful and unifying black. A poetic re-interpretation of landscape emerges in my distinctive and authentic voice.
