I am a Calgary artist working in and around the Canadian Rockies, painting wildlife, landscapes, outdoor sport, and equine art. My paintings use a variety of colours and layered mixed media to create depth and movement. During the making process I am fully immersed in studying the ecology of subjects and spending time in places experiencing them. Research is a large aspect of creating the connection and expression reflected in each painting.
Wilderness makes us feel curious, alive, peaceful, and connected. Intimate moments, connections with wildlife, and wild places build relationships with nature that people want to protect. These paintings are a window into those moments. Sharing the wonder and awe of nature through artistic expression inspires conservation. Allowing ourselves to respect and share space with the natural world will sculpt a more sustainable future for us all.
