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