I consider myself extremely fortunate to have been born, and still live, in Vernon. My education in fine arts and graphic design served me well in my thirty year career in the promotional products industry, many years of which included graphic design and screen printing.
Returning to my fine arts roots, I discovered soft pastels, which I am combining with my passion for animals to produce custom pet portraits. My works are a blend of lifelike detail with painterly strokes of color and texture. Each painting is built with multiple layers of color as I strive to capture the essence of each animal and provide a treasured, lasting memory.
I also like to let loose and let my imagination run with mixed media, semi abstract works of birds, animals, landscapes, and perhaps something of the imagination and heart. There are many layers to our worlds and lives and mixed media allows me to build upon those layers and then decide what to hide and what to reveal. There will always be a bit of a mystery and I hope to provoke some thought and questions with each one.
