 Frog Pond: Green and Blue, Oil on canvas, 24"h x 30"w , 2014            Hollis Street: Autumn Day, Acrylic on canvas, 12"h x 16"w, 2014

My recent paintings address common Nova Scotia scenes, both in the city and in nature. Real objects, large and small, are transformed into complex but harmonious textures by light and shadow.  

Finding and capturing patterns in this complexity is a key component of my art.  My paintings attempt to evoke familiar everyday scenes.

While a painting may be based on a specific place, the image should feel familiar to the Nova Scotia landscape.

My recent landscapes are available for sale from the Secord Gallery, Upstairs, 6301 Quinpool Road, Halifax, Nova Scotia. To check out these paintings go to http://www.secordgallery.com

My plein air works are on display for sale at Art 1274 Hollis, which is an artist run cooperative in Halifax Nova Scotia.
