I am a contemporary abstract artist, my work is very eclectic and stems from an intuitive and subconscious process. Often, when I paint, I am visiting nature or expressing a feeling or emotion from the past or present. What emerges are images that are my interpretation of places I have visited. My artwork doesn’t reflect a specific scene, rather it's a distillation of memories from paths traveled. Some of these journeys are from the prairies where I grew up, Quebec where I now reside and others from time spent in Europe. As a result, the works reflect both the old world and the new. I want each person to be able to see my paintings infused with their own emotions and ideas of place and time. I experiment with techniques such as impasto, and mark marking to find my own visual language and expression. I do this by continual layering, to create a history of surface.
