Edge of the Pond, Oil on canvas, 24"h x 30"w Spring Reflections, Oil on canvas, 24"h x 32"w
My landscape paintings address common Nova
Scotia settings. Birches, evergreens, marsh grass,
water and boulders are transformed into complex and chaotic visual textures by
light and shadow.
Finding and capturing simplified harmonious
patterns in this complexity is a key component of my art. My paintings attempt to evoke familiar
everyday scenes that one encounters on a walk through the woods.
painting may be based on a specific place, the image should feel familiar to
anyone who has walked through a Nova Scotia landscape.
