ARTIST’S STATEMENT

I love creating art, but my favourite thing to make is to make the viewer smile, laugh, or experience a sense of surprise. Whether it’s a film character playing a musical instrument, or The Rock coming for your cake pop, I love bringing something unexpected to every piece I create.

Acrylic on cradled wood panel.

10x10"

"Echeveria" is an original 10x10" acrylic painting on cradled wood panel. It features a still life echeveria succulent houseplant in a terra cotta pot on a soft white background.

The painting is varnished with a semi-gloss UV protectant coating to resist fading over time. The edges of the cradled wood board are painted white to match the background of the painting so it can be hung/displayed without a frame if the buyer chooses.

I am an enthusiastic plant parent, and I love painting my favourites from among my 90+ houseplants (each of whom are named; this echeveria is Marlin).

We fit together like lego bricks, like a lakeside dock and muskoka chairs, like a beautiful view and a glass of wine.

8x8x1.5"

The acrylic painting is done on cradled birch panel with raw wood edges and varnished with a semi-gloss UV protectant coating to resist fading over time.

"We Fit Together" is part of a series of pop-culture inspired acrylics in bright colours that brought as much joy to paint as they hopefully will bring to collectors who choose to hang them. I love creating that feeling of surprise, a laugh, or smile, in the viewer, by presenting a familiar subject in an unfamiliar or unexpected way.

Acrylic and composition gold leaf on cradled birch panel.

10x10"

Clean lines, a simple colour palette, and just a bit of jazz. Simple pieces that you could design a whole room around. That's what I was craving when I created the October series, and I absolutely feel that I accomplished it! I hope you love these new abstract works as much as I do.

October 2 is 10x10" on cradled birch panel with a depth of 7/8". It is matte acrylic paint, embellished with composition gold leaf (a blend of zinc and copper that shines like the real thing), and signed on the right edge of the piece in gold paint pen.

Unlike my other work, this piece is not varnished, in order to maintain the textures of the exposed wood, paint, and gold leaf. Handle with care to make it last a lifetime.
