‘Capturing moments, memories and special places in Georgian Bay and Escarpment Country’

I am a Collingwood-based landscape painter, working mostly in acrylics and mixed media. I paint from a place of gratitude and joy for life, celebrating the beauty of the world in which we live. My paintings reflect my love of nature, the beauty of ‘place’, and the awe and wonder of creation. It is my hope that they bring that same joy and wonder to each viewer.

With brush and canvas, I strive to capture the beauty, and feeling of peace - the gift of a walk in the wild. I love to paint my favourite places and unexpected beauty on Georgian Bay, along the Bruce trail or on one of the many beautiful local trails. The special places that evoke memories and bring joy with each visit. I love the architecture of winter trees and long January shadows, the light dappling through summer shade, the moody blue skies over Georgian Bay, and fall fireworks of colour. While my camera is usually an iPhone these days, the inspiration for my paintings comes from the joy of daily excursions in our local ‘backyard’.
