The Canadian Landscape has greatly influenced my work as an artist.
I went to school for forestry and loved working in the remote northern
forests. It brought me closer to my passion of spending time in nature.
I receive so much from being outdoors, for me the voice of nature is
always encouraging. Our Canadian land is about resilience, survival
and this moment. I attempt to convey this in my paintings, I want to
extract the beauty, story and spirit of the landscape.
Being creative has always been a part of life. I operated a
photography/art studio for 19 years in the Peace River area. I was a
wedding photographer on weekends and artist during the week. I
started taking fine art classes where I was introduced to printmaking,
fine art photography, drawing and painting. My career as an artist
started unfolding and I took part in group and solo shows throughout
Recently I have moved with my family to St. Albert, Alberta where I work full time as an artist.
