ARTIST WEBSITE

I am a full-time Burlington artist and art instructor. My watercolor painting style has evolved into a highly realistic style covering a variety of subjects which may include birds & wildlife, nature, portraits, floral, still life & landscape. Subjects with reflective qualities like glass and metal are especially intriguing to me. I’m a very active instructor teaching regular classes as well as travelling to teach workshops throughout Ontario, Canada and occasionally in the US which I’ve done for about 30 years. Although paint in acrylic and oil as well, my main medium is watercolor.

Biography:
I am a full-time Burlington artist and art instructor. My watercolor painting style has evolved into a highly realistic style covering a variety of subjects which may include birds & wildlife, nature, portraits, floral, still life & landscape. Subjects with reflective qualities like glass and metal are especially intriguing to me. I’m a very active instructor teaching regular classes as well as travelling to teach workshops throughout Ontario, Canada and occasionally in the US which I’ve done for about 30 years. Although paint in acrylic and oil as well, my main medium is watercolor.
Artist Statement:
I love the transparency and luminosity of watercolor. It’s something that is unique to only watercolor. Every subject presents new challenges and pushes me to try new techniques and different methods. Many years of experimentation (and yes, lots of failures) have taught me to use quality materials and plan ahead in my painting, as watercolors are less forgiving than other mediums. Every success is a real triumph though and I love to share what I’ve learned with other painters.
Light is a crucial element in almost everything I paint. For me, it’s the life of the painting. I always strive to have interesting lighting in my work and try to create it though the application of subtle glazes and deep rich shadows.
