I have always loved nature and have always had an eye for beauty. Everywhere I go, I have a camera with me, ready to capture the beauty around me so I can share it with others or just look at it again and again in a photo. A few years ago, I acquired a DSLR camera and became even more obsessed with photography. I have spent many weekends hiking around Victoria Beach taking photos and have seldom missed a sunset when at the beach. The colours generated by the vast prairies skies over Lake Winnipeg can make for some amazing captures. I enjoy creating photographs that have a highly artistic appeal.
I started taking photos with the intention of recreating them into artworks. However I seldom had the time in my career in the Information Technology field. I recently retired and have finally had more time to dive in and pursue my passion for painting.
I mostly painted with Acrylics, off and on, throughout the years. A few years ago I started painting with Oils. I prefer Oil painting for the depth of colour and textures as well as the ease of blending. I also enjoy painting with Alcohol Inks due to vibrant colours of the inks. I also sometimes dabble with painting with watercolours.
My subjects are typically landscapes, such as mountain landscapes of Arizona, beach landscapes of Victoria Beach or seascapes from BC but I have always had a fascination with Polar Bears and have often used them as subjects in my art.
