Artist's Statement

I paint people living out their lives in scenes of which I have taken part.  My goal is to make a city ‘come alive’ on canvas.  I paint my experience as a Canadian; I document my travels through urban centres.  Like a visual snapshot within a memory of a place, I create clear, intense remembrances that stay in the mind after returning from an outing or a trip abroad.
