Through catastrophic brain injury and resulting trauma comes a channel of expression from

which I create my artworks.

 

Having an education in art, I have learned skills such as Life drawing, Still Life, Shape, Principles and Elements, Colour and the Fundamentals. This has given me a successful career as a 

well-established professional artist.

 

I tell a story with each work of art, with a beginning, middle and ending, leaving you with a

feeling of unity. It resembles maturity as it flows of peace and tranquility. Having the focal point

made up of different values and contrast allows your eye to be carried all throughout the piece.

 

My paintings are balanced in an asymmetrical way. Gradients are produced throughout each

piece by the use of saturation. I achieve depth by adding layers of secondary and tertiary colours over the colour with the darkest hue. The darker hue adds a subtle amount of contrast while it captivates the interest of the viewer with lighter shades and values. Using textile as my medium for texture works verywell as I have a background in sculpture. I can mold and form it until I have it precisely placed. Iachieve similar and consistent compositions by using this same process of application.

 

My work is represented and seen throughout North America and I have participated in various

regional art shows as well as having been honoured to participate in The Florence Biennale, in

Italy and the Chicago IL USA’s Art Expo. My artwork has been heavily collected by the Federal Government of Canada as well as held in many private collections and in many countries.

 

I continue to challenge myself to create a multi-dimensional world on a two-dimensional stage

in order to achieve depth and emotion in each piece. I call this technique 2D Sculpture.
