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.

Maple Leaf 2010
This is the colourful season in southern Ontario. Various leaves make wonderful little still lifes. I see these as I walk dogs in fields, and I can't resist bringing them home. Imagine 6 dogs on leashes and a handful of delicate leaves!
6x8" Oil on cotton panel
$85 + s&h
Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing this painting, or if you would like to commission a pet portrait.
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.
