I grew up on an acreage and now live in the country with my family. We live in a three acre forest that is my inspiration for my forest paintings. It is my calm, happy, quite place to create. My mission is to paint about things. To paint the feeling of a place. Half of my works are created in the privacy of my studio, and the other half have been painted on location either at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and the Raffles Hotel in Dubai.
