About Me...

bio pic 2021.jpg

I am an artist living and working in Elora, Ontario. With a background in Interior Design, I have trained with abstract artists such as Nicholas Wilton, Lewis Noble and Jodie King. 

 

My paintings are imaginary, intuitive, soulful expressions, often depicting abstracted lands and waters near where I live. My intention is to draw the viewer into the painting to experience a place of contemplation or perhaps a sense of wonder.

Through a process of laying down multiple layers of paint, ink, collage and other media, each painting slowly reveals itself and decides where it should be taken. You, the viewer, complete the process by interpreting the painting as you wish.
