I am an artist working in oils (for now). I make studies of the qualities light using various subjects that interest me, especially animals, landscapes and still lifes. Art is a lifetime journey.

Backdoor Sunrise 1
I have done a few small back door sunrise paintings. I sometimes notice (before my coffee!) the miracle happening in the sky when I am letting my dog out in the morning. I did 3 larger versions of the 6x6" paintings on 16x16" canvas. I thought I needed some larger paintings for drama at the art show I was recently in.
I am a self taught artist, having a background as a sign painter and taken a number of courses in fine art in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia and in Toronto. In fall 2007, I participated in a workshop given by the wonderful equine artist, Valerie Hinz.
My favorite subjects are horses and other animals, but also landscapes and still life. I am facinated by light and colour.
