“I love everything to do with the process of creating, be it lyrics to a song, a melody, a sculpture, a painting, or a recipe. This is when I feel most alive, most vital and most connected to the world.
I returned to painting 15 years ago after a long hiatus in which songwriting and performing took center stage. To ease back into the visual world, I based my paintings on photos taken on walks in the fields and forests around Almonte. Nature has always been my best teacher and primary source of inspiration.
More recently, I have been approaching canvas without a pre-conceived idea of the finished painting, relying on my visual vocabulary of organic forms and colour. I hope you will find my work quietly accessible, refreshing, and gently challenging.”
