I paint subjects that I feel instant, powerful connections with. Sanderlings racing back and forth across the beach like windup toys. A daisy happily dancing in a summer breeze. The serene peace of gliding though the wilderness in my kayak, like a floating leaf barely touching the water’s surface.

I pare back landscapes and seascapes to a few simple shapes in strong colours – a clean-edged graphic style that satisfies my eye and aesthetic.

The vibrancy and fast drying time of acrylic paint suit my style and temperament. My compositions are uncomplicated and reductive. I enjoy the process of creating.

When I have captured the emotion or mood of my subject it is a magical moment of pure joy.

 

FYI, there are not many paintings on this site at one time, but we do rotate new ones in quite frequently.
