Artist Statement

In the words of the artist

I was born and raised on the west coast of British Columbia,Canada.  I am self taught.  I sought expression in all types of media practicing such styles as realism, abstraction, symbolism and inner intuitive expression.  Going beyond the learning curve of my early work gave me the ground work for the art I practice today. I create from my inner experience and depend largely on dreams and imagination for ideas and vision.

Now, my painting has become like a meditation.  It allows me to enter into another world.  It is like the Gaia is speaking to me out of that universal connectedness. It calls me to use identifiable images to hook and link people to that same place.

Through my painting I am drawn to enter into points of view and places in the psyche that are beyond words. My paintings examine things like groups and flocks, movement, feelings and mystery.  I am as much the medium of expression as the brush, the paint and the canvas.

Out of the maelstrom of my own experience my paintings bring visions of a larger purpose. Each work delivers something to the viewer, they speak to the soul, leaving the interpretation in the experience itself.
