I am a mixed media artist from Vancouver, British Columbia. My studio is located amidst the rainforest with an ocean vista, I am surrounded by the subtleties of changing skies and rhythms of the ocean.
Texture and light are two main elements I incorporate into my work, blurring the line between painting and sculpture, inviting the viewer to touch them. I apply multiple layers of coloured gel mediums, mixed with textural elements which include both natural and man-made, each partially revealed to create a 3D effect.
The abstraction of the constant changing of shapes colours and patterns of light in the reflected water and changing skies during sunsets and sunsets mesmerize me and are a source of my inspiration. I am fascinated with the contrasting nature of the organic and how that can provide an escape to a dream-like place. They are ethereal landscapes and forms of the mind, not of a place, but rather, a state of being.
I am currently represented by Ukama Gallery in Vancouver, The Kube Gallery, International Artists and the Gallery at Mattick’s Farm in Victoria. My paintings have been exhibited at numerous galleries in BC’s Lower Mainland, including Federation of Canadian Artists Gallery Granville Island; Ferry Building Gallery West Vancouver, and Seymour Art Gallery North Vancouver. My work is in private collections the US, Mexico, Australia, Japan, UK, New Zealand, Peru, China and Europe.
