I have worked in a variety of media, including pen and ink, watercolour, and most recently, working in three dimensions, using live wood as a starting point. My pieces always begins with the form suggested by the natural object and I feel that in every material arising from nature, there is an intrinsic essence that reaches beyond the corporeal. Wood, often having lived for longer than any human, embodies this intangible content.
My techniques and use of media continue to evolve: I feel the inspiration available from the natural environment is limitless and has allowed me to “spread my wings” and work on more adventurous and larger scale pieces.
I have shown my art in venues and arts events around Vancouver Island, including the 2019/20 "One tree Exhibit at the Robert Bateman Gallery Victoria BC. as well as the Sooke and Sidney Fine Arts Shows,
My work can be found at the Salish Sea Gallery (Bowser), Reflecting Spirit Gallery in Uclulet and Ravensong Gallery on Quardra Island and can also be found in private collections in the UK, USA and Canada.
To say that living in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver island, Canada is inspiring, would be an understatement. This place oozes inspiration at every turn. The boldness of the natural world, the serenity of the sea, and the more relaxed feeling of this place all contribute to the work I do and the art I create.
