All of my paintings are an exploration – either representational of people and nature or non-representational work that explores bits of poetry and always, nature.
I work in acrylic for non-representational work and oil for the representational paintings.
I find that the more connected I am to the content, the more successful the painting seems to be. Content comes from family, from my love of nature from travel and reading.
I received my BA (Spanish) in 1997 from the University of Calgary and my BFA in painting in 2003 at what was then the Alberta College of Art and Design and is now the Alberta University of the Arts, also in Calgary. I am part of various groups that paint and show together in Calgary. I also work as a Spanish to English translator and in early 2020 published a children’s book called Sammy, Wise Old Rabbit.
