Artist Statement
I’ve always been drawn to the water. I am mesmerized by its reflective surface, its ability to change colour and its transformative power. As such, Georgian Bay has become my muse, where I explore the possibilities of representing the reflective, dynamic qualities of water, snow and sky through mixed media. Moving across the heavily textured canvas, the lustre of the pouring medium mimics the sparkle and dynamism of water. Bold textures contrast with the delicate sheen. Gestural lines and reflective pools of pouring medium lie over aspects of painted imagery to create a landscape that meanders between abstraction and realism.
