Inspiration

A monolithic rock, standing tall on a rugged coastal shore, weathers the elements as seasons pass. Despite the challenging conditions, trees grow, and life prospers on top of the rock, it seems solid. However the permanence is an illusion, the rock is changing slowly, and in time will dissolve into sand.

Purchasing Original Paintings

Interested in one of my paintings? Let me know which painting you have in mind. Paintings can be picked up, or we can arrange shipping. If you are here on Saltspring Island, I can bring it to you to see how it looks in your space.

About the Canvas

I build my own stretcher-frames, and stretch the canvas. The paintings are 1.5″ deep, with the outside edges preserved as clean raw canvas. This method of preparation allows for a frameless presentation.
