Stopping in the Snow Storm
As a plein air painter I paint in all kinds of weather. This painting, which I did in my studio, conveys the memory of what I felt when caught, en plein air, in a sudden snow storm on Johnson Street in Victoria.

The great thing about plein air painting is the freedom it provides – the opportunity to find inspiration in what I see and feel, to cultivate the discipline and apply my skills and to share this experience with others. It is deeply personal but also a social responsibility.
"I want to ground the viewer, at least metaphorically, and at the same time transport the viewer to another place that feels real and familiar but also spiritual and mystic. I want viewers to have their feet on the ground but their heads in the sky."
