I work in watercolors and oils to invite the viewer into a deeper observation of our natural world. The translucency of pigment on paper and the fluidity of water is an irresistible way to describe light and shadow on flowers, plants and the landscape. Landforms in Southern Alberta, where sky meets foothills and prairies, also inspire me to put oils to canvas. I am a gardener and a hiker by upbringing and by passion. My current work has a botanical focus, whether the subject is domestically cultivated or found in our beautiful wild Alberta places.
