I design my work to create a quiet intimacy with my subjects. I take the viewer into the voluptuous folds of a rose, the intricate tributaries of a leaf, or the suggestion of human postures in still life arrangements. Arbutus tree bark in various degrees of exfoliation, with evolving colours and dramatic patterns, continues my examining of abstractions in the natural world. The more familiar intimacies of body fragments and beds with their human impressions explore these same elements where reality blurs into abstraction. Ultimately, I want my paintings to feel both familiar and mysterious at the same time.
Born in BC, I studied at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design and completed my MFA at Concordia University in 1996. After 30 years in Vancouver I now live and work in the Comox Valley, Vancouver Island.
