My work is inspired by the spectacular scenery which surrounds me here at my home at the northern-eastern tip of Cape Breton Island. My paintings reflect my love of colour, texture, and improvisation and I use varying techniques to create an expression of my idea or subject, inviting the viewer’s imagination and/or interpretation.
