From a very early age I was interested in art. Studying art in high school only tweaked my interest more. After highschool I attended S.A.I.T., taking first year Architectural Technology where I learned perspective drawing. Later I attended the Alberta College of Art where he took lessons in Figure Drawing. Understanding the need to improve my technique with all mediums I began taking many workshops from established artists to improve his style and master principles of design.
I work primarily in watercolour and acrylics and this allows for cross section of subjects landscapes, old barns, structures, boats, florals or abstracts.
The need to portray the subtle feeling of nature has led me to the painting of nature’s hidden treasures. I spend my time split between the studio and painting Plien-Air. Out of the studio and in the field my original watercolour plien air paintings provide the subjects for future studio works.
This is reflected in my paintings; some of nature’s small and usually unnoticed hidden scenes.
