My work is inspired by the sublime beauty of nature and the organic materials that surround it. As an artist, I draw, paint and sculpt, creating unique works of art that capture the essence of the environment I live in.
Living on an island in the St. Lawrence Thousand Island Region I'm fortunate to be surrounded by a range of natural organic materials that I incorporate into my work. I'm passionate about offering sculptures and paintings created on my rugged island shoreline to collectors who desire a deep connection with nature. As I create, I position myself as nature's advocate.
"I respectfully acknowledge that I am a settler creating art on unceded traditional territory of Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples, who inspire me to care deeply for this land that nurtures and sustains me".
