  • Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour

Artists Statement:

Since 1976 I have traveled by van, across Canada from B.C. to Newfoundland, as well as making many trips North to the Yukon, some up the Dempster Highway as far as the Arctic Circle. On these lengthy trips, I try to sense the regional character of the different areas. Numerous small watercolours and photographs from the trips give me the ideas for my large paintings, which are done in the studio. In my large paintings, I attempt to convey some of the unusual effects of light, colour, and space on the landscape. The colour patterns in my work provide visual movement, and help me to convey the atmospheric effects, which are so fascinating in nature.
