I envisioned expanding the same concepts of design I used in stained glass and fabric design into my own through a new medium acrylic on canvas. The result was CONTEMPORARY STYLIZED BOLD GRAPHIC depictions of Canadian landscapes with my signature VIBRANT BOLD CLEAN LINES OF COLOUR and brilliant hues outlined in white. Inspired by The Group of Seven my paintings take on a new life. The bold lines creates depth and vibrancy which are offset with simplified forms and solid shapes. I have lived and travelled extensively and I paint from memory and the emotional experience rather than photographs. My landscape paintings have a feeling of peace, solitude and quiet. This year’s collection brings 2 new series titled “The Red Canoe ” where a red canoe is placed in distinctive Canadian landscapes.and "The Whimsical Maritimes Series" which consists of colourful houses and depictions of oceanside life. I continue to paint my "Algonquin Series" inspired landscapes.
