Artist’s Statement

With my paintings, I seek to capture the simple, beautiful moments I witness in everyday life. A walk through my neighbourhood, a drive in the country, or more distant travel provides me with plenty of inspiration for painting.

Growing up in a small town has given me a great appreciation for the simple, ordinary moments and everyday sights of the community. I have moved away from my hometown, but I continue to return to paint local scenes. I now live in the city and my current painting practice seeks out moments that give me the feeling of home, at the same time exploring what makes a community special and unique. My paintings are a reflection of this appreciation and are a way for me to savour simple beautiful moments.
