Acrylic / Ink / Beads
In my childhood and youthful years, I was curious about the outdoor world - the grasses and trees that formed the landscapes, the birds and animals discovered through exploration and play. I learned to appreciate the textures and colours of the Saskatchewan prairies and later the different textures and colours of Northern Alberta where I now live. As a child I attempted to capture and express the world I lived in on paper...or bone...or wood...anything that I could get my hands on that I thought would make a good canvas.
Today, curiosity still drives my artistic creativity. I focus my work on achieving balance through colour, texture, and shape and placement. The artistic intent of my work is to connect with people to nature through realism and/or abstract images of the natural world around me
