I grew up and live in New Brunswick, Canada. I’ve been drawing and painting since I was a young child. My father always said I must have been born with a silver brush in my hand 🙂
I especially love to paint animals and wildlife and nature. Recently I have started on this journey of abstracts and contemporary work. I sometimes get my inspiration from photographs and sometimes something as simple as a colour or shape or scene I saw. Or the combination of the two. I usually let the brush take my mind where it wants to go when creating and let my heart and emotion take over. With animals, I usually start with the eyes. They are the window to the soul and my journey to creating the art piece begins there.
My biggest influence in the art world growing up was Robert Bateman. His creations are stunning and lifelike and have such emotion to them. My other influence was Bob Ross. I was amazed at how a painting would come together in just a half an hour. So with those 2 mentors, I developed my own style of art, and now with some abstract and contemporary mixed in.
I hope you enjoy viewing the artwork and your visit to my site. Feel free to visit anytime and drop me a message. Would love to hear your thoughts about my artwork 🙂
