Experience

Artist Biography
Over the years I have taken countless art classes and workshops and continuously strive to develop my artistic abilities by experimenting with new media, tools, and methods. I’ve benefited greatly from the wisdom of our excellent local art teachers, especially my long-time teacher and mentor, Sharon Moore-Foster.
Currently my main focus is on prairie landscapes in acrylics and flower sketching, as well as urban sketching, in watercolour and ink.
Artist Statement
In my compositions I strive to capture that fleeting moment when light and shadow transform an ordinary scene into something magical. Suddenly, dramatic shapes, colours, and abstract patterns are revealed. I feel most at home in the sweet spot between realism and impressionism. Colour choices and mark making are an expression of my emotional response which, I hope, will resonate with viewers of my work.
