I am a Toronto-based artist working with various mediums although most often acrylic paint on canvas.
I revel in and marvel at colour, right angles, soft lines, blue skies, stark shadows, and intense contrasts. My focus is on expressing the art and soul among the myriad layers of life. Themes of connection, solitude, stillness and stoic vacancy are what fascinate my imagination.
My work is inspired by places I have lived and travelled, as well as the vibrant visual encounters in my daily routine, which leave me with a sense of admiration for the simplicity in the everyday.
I paint in a photo realistic manner to capture the magnetism of grace and allurement. My process begins with reference to photos I have taken, to reinterpret the emotion and mystery I have experienced, moments that have made me forget everything else except for the humble beauty surrounding me and how I desire to share this feeling with you.
