As an artist I enjoy the way travel challenges me... Whether painting on the shores of the Mediterranean or on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, from the hillsides of Ireland to the fields of Provence, from the streets of Toscana to the Moroccan coastline, I immerse myself in every experience of every instant of the surrounding environment. With my easel anchored, I’ve immortalized sensations, embodied emotions and engraved impressions through the passing days and seasons.
I am inspired by the great Impressionists, but I also tend towards a degree of abstraction in my work, and spontaneity is important to my artistic process. The result is a robust, even audacious body of work which celebrates and evokes the world we live in, encouraging viewers to travel and to dream.
