"I have always lived in beautiful southern Saskatchewan. Im mostly self taught. My subjects vary but my art is centered around outdoors and imagery of the prairies. My inspiration has a lot to do with light, shape, lines and colours. Saskatchewan is full of inspiration and the beauty is endless."
"I was born and raised in southern Saskatchewan. I am a self-taught artist who enjoys taking the occasional art class to learn new techniques and to meet fellow artists. I have tried a variety of mediums for my artwork, always coming back to my favourite medium, oil. My inspiration comes mostly from the countryside around where I live. Family also brings inspiration for many of my pieces."
"Rural life has brought out a keen awareness to the various elements of the seasons on the prairies. My work comes directly from observing and studying the reaction of plants and the landscape to these changes. I use my sketches, plein air studies or photos for reference. Having spent years experimenting with different mediums, I have found acrylics & ink to be very versatile Introducing new mediums sometimes enables me to capture the image I want to express in a unique way which continues to challenge me as an artist..
My intention is to bring out the extraordinary in something that is seen as ordinary or not seen at all. My hope is to bring awareness and appreciation for how precious our environment is, through my artwork."
"My form of art has gone from mark making on paper to mark making on fabric of all kinds. Born and raised on the prairies, nature and all its beauty, has played a large part in the inspiration for my work."
"For more than 3 decades, as an educator, I enjoyed the process of helping others find their creative impulse and talents. I have just begun to give myself the time to look for my hidden creative spark again."
