I’ve been branching out with my landscapes lately… Five weeks spent near Rathtrevor Park on Vancouver Island led to several new paintings, one of which is pictured above. I’ve also been busy working on a Capilano Canyon series. Daily dog walks in the canyon adjacent to my home in North Vancouver, in ever changing conditions, have inspired this series.
A cabin on Parker Island B.C, in the Southern Gulf Islands, off the coast of Vancouver, is another landscape I adore. With three grandchildren on nearby Galiano Island and an airy porch on the bluff by the sea in which to paint, I’m feeling very excited about the light, the ocean, the fir and arbutus groves, the eagles and even the rocks and moss.
Having passed many summertime hours in another small porch studio at a beloved family haven on Otter Lake, Ontario, I’m happy to share some of the paintings I have produced there in the COTTAGE ART section of my portfolio, all evocative of life in the heart of Ontario’s Rideau Lakes Cottage Country. Lake, sky, boats, ever changing light, a water loving yellow lab and a chipmunk crazy springer spaniel, all continue to provide endless subjects to paint.
I’ve always had a passion for portraiture. In the PORTRAITS section of my portfolio you’ll find both commissioned works and also some I have done of friends and family, even a self portrait which I’m told makes me look miserable!
OTHER WORK includes paintings that just don't fit into my other categories... French cafes, pastries, a turkey named Harper and some far flung landscapes to name a few....
I hope you enjoy my website and I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or wish to purchase a painting.
