Lives and works in Winnipeg, Manitoba
Telephone: (204) 612-9639
I explore ways that trees structure, energize and connect with the landscape. My style is loose and organic. I interpret the landscape rather than replicate it by layering colours, shapes and lines to show the interplay among the seen and unseen parts of the view.
Currently I’m painting landscapes of the Canadian Shield in Northwestern Ontario near the Manitoba border. At the beginning of each year I develop concepts for 3-4 series of paintings each with a distinct theme to examine. I then create a number of paintings to develop a visual narrative about each theme. I mainly use acrylic on canvas and watercolour on paper.
I have been painting intermittently for over 35 years and started painting full-time and established my art business, Life-az-iz Studio, a few years ago.
