I lived on Hadia Gwaii for a number of years. While thinking back and remembering the lush green of the old growth forests, the shimmering blue sea and the red and black paintings of the Haida artists I was inspired to paint "Check Mate".

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."
