"Salvaged" references reclaiming something lost or discarded. Like a ship at sea that has been abandoned "Salvaged" is a painting that has been brought back to life from an old failed painting. I bring forward some of the underlying colors by sanding and scratching while incorporating the old texture into the new painting. “Salvaged” is part of my Reclamation theme, to re-claim, re-new and re-vitalize my discarded paintings.

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.
