“City Blues” is one of 11 paintings in my “Connection” series. Restrictions, closures, and cancellations of public events, restaurants and bars because of covid, is a major cause of depression, especially for people living and working in the city. Our connection to the city during the pandemic became stifling, and constricting.

My art is influenced by the small communities I have lived in over the years. My collage and abstract landscape paintings have multilayers of rich texture and bold colors that reference northern BC. I believe an artist can convey mood, feeling and emotions without using symbolism or realism.
"Life is an adventure and whatever life brings to you, good or bad it is all part of that adventure and it is up to you how you react to that adventure."
