The Nova Scotian landscape and seascape often serve as the subject matter for my paintings. Places visited, land worked, or imagined consist of my material. Growing up in rural Nova Scotia on a dairy farm has given me a lifelong appreciation for the beauty of and connection to the landscapes in our province.
Recently, I have been studying, photographing for reference, and painting on site the Risser's beach area, Cape Chignecto, beaches on the South shore of Nova Scotia, and the Stewiacke-Shubenacadie area. I spend a lot of time camping, hiking and cross-country skiing with my family and there is so much to explore and enjoy in this province.
