I am from Halifax, Nova Scotia and have lived here all of my life. I am a self taught artist and have been painting for about ten years. I work with oils as well as acrylics. I have always been inspired by design, especially modern/contemporary. I love color although I am color blind. I love texture and always try to incorporate it into the color. The images just come to me. When a client commissions me to do a piece I like to see the space where it will hang to get an idea of their style. I like to know the colors you love and your basic style and then I do the rest. It usually takes me between two to six weeks to produce a canvas, based on dry time and of course inspiration and size. I have done many commissions for private homes as well as The Lord Nelson Hotel , Halifax Naturopathic,and several offices. I have also helped support several charities including Kids Help Phone, The Canadian Liver Foundation, Adsum House, Alice House, St Leonard’s Society of NS and Dalhousie Medical Humanities. I am currently selling my work at Jay Wells on Barrington St. , Halifax Naturopathic on Almon Street & in the rooftight model home in St Andrew’s West , Fall River. Thank you for your interest in my art.
