My favorite subjects are the beautiful towns, valleys, farms and vistas of the Ontario landscape.
Since my preferred subject is the land at a special moment, which lasts very briefly, I think my best paintings are created from plein air observation. The primary goal of my work is for it to portray the mood of the land; the universality of the land rather than one specific place.
I would like my work to evoke a special nostalgia for a similar place or mood in each individual viewer's memory.
In the past few years I have begun painting in oils, also working on location when possible. Most recently, I have been studying the techniques used by the old masters to produce paintings of high realism.
I have produced a special body of work for a guest show in April 2017 at the Owen Sound Artist's Coop...."MARITIME ROAD TRIP" These are images from our road trip in the fall of 2016 to celebrate 50 years of marriage for my husband and I.
