I am a B.C. artist who has been working in acrylic paints since 2008, learning to enjoy the different techniques they afford. Previously I worked with oils and with black artist's pens, doing drawings which I often finished with water-colors. My passion is to depict the wonderfully varied B.C. west coast where I have lived all of my life, as well as other parts of our beautiful planet. My hope is to use all of the above mediums to continue and expand the scope of my work.
I have my Savary Island Art Studio and Gallery behind our cabin on Savary Island, just north of Powell River, B.C., where I welcome 'locals', summer cottage people and day-tourists to view and to buy. I also paint at our home in Aldergrove, B.C., and do photography there as well as on the island. My photos form the subject matter for most of my paintings. I freely adapt the images from these photos, and also create commissioned works to meet the needs and tastes of my clients.
