I am an abstract artist who works with acrylic and photography on sculpted canvas. I have studied in Banff School of fine Arts and have a four year diploma in Fine Arts from Ontario College of Art spending my last year of study in Florence, Italy, studying under Canadian Figurative Artist Tom La Pierre. My inspiration can come from anywhere. I have been intrigued by the moon and the night sky or the fluid motion of water. Or how the shadows fall to create intriguing shapes in the narrow streets of Florence. I look through the lens of a camera for the abstract in nature. I use my photography as one of the media to blend the precision of digital photography with the unpredictability and fluidity of paint. By applying a variety of acrylic techniques to my photographic imagery I combine the best of each medium. Exploring my photographic imagery I isolate the abstract that exists in nature. I view the shape and texture of the canvas as a catalyst to unlimited creativity. By combining multiple components into one cohesive piece I am able to explore yet another dimension to my art. I am fascinated and intrigued by how far I can push canvas from a traditional square or rectangle to a new art form.
