ARTIST STATEMENT

My paintings are all inspired by movement and dynamic colour – in bright flowers, Nova Scotian sunsets, local landscapes and the Atlantic Ocean.

By using vibrant colours and bold strokes, my work reflects an exaggerated, painterly style – one that conveys what I am both seeing and feeling.
