I studied art at Emily Carr University of Art and Design where I focused on painting, color theory and anatomy drawing. This soon progressed into a passion of exploring color and the human form. I moved to New York in 1989 which was a blessing in disguise as it allowed me the opportunity to breathe in the creativity that was and still is New York City. Through the years my work has evolved and I am now focused on the idea of capturing human emotion, to the point that no words are needed. My paintings convey the stark contrast between melancholy and the intense passion that allows all of us to move forward. Each of my subjects provide a glimpse into how strong the human spirit is by way of showcasing their intensity and inner strength. The majority of my work is larger scale acrylic on canvas. I am consistantly inspired by daggeurotype photography as well as iconic sculpture and often add a touch of these styles to my work.
