The Artist

Who I am

Creativity is in my nature.  Painting is the vehicle that allows me to exercise that creativity.  It’s a welcomed diversion from my daily routine involving steel rails and megabytes of data transporting the masses.             

 

As a painter of landscapes and seascapes, I am inspired by the places I visit. I know I’ve found my inspiration when I begin to contemplate the history and future possibilities of the new terrain that lay before me.  Although I admire traditional landscape artists, my mind and hand are always in training to create works that are more contemporary so the viewer can make their own interruptions of my work.   

 

My latest body of work is focused on capturing the essence of fishing weirs.  I discovered them on a small island off the coast of New Brunswick Canada, and was immediately captivated.  Many years ago these simple structures of fishing net and wooden poles were used to capture herring, using the tide as the means of luring fish into the nets.  This method has long been forgotten, as are the weirs --abandoned, dilapidated and collapsing into the sea. 

 

 

Stay tuned!  --- My trip to Madeira Portugal this summer has inspired a new series!
