What I do

Spending a lot of time outdoors and immersing myself in the geography of my subject, I try to work in natural settings and from life as much as possible. This is reflected in my artwork. In the studio, larger paintings are created from smaller outdoor sketches. This was a process I learned from by the likes of Tom Thomson. Like my predecessors, I am fascinated with light and colour and how it affects our world. This is what I paint.

Education

I am self educated. I don't mean that I invented the techniques I use. What I mean is that I look at the paintings of artists who inspire me, seeking out artists I can learn from and studying with them. Richard Schmid and Jeremy Lipking are two contemporaries that I have been fortunate to work with.
