Growing up on the West Coast, the landscape has always had a large influence on my  life.  Mountains, sea and forest were the backdrop to my life and were my playground: the textures, colours and atmosphere the  influence to my art. In my painting , photography and decorating I tend to want to capture the essence of the natural environment, cool blues, vibrant greens, and earthy brown and tans.  Living in the Niagara Region I am still blessed with a beautiful environment that every day inspires me to capture it.
