Artist’s Statement
J'ai toujours pris plaisir à faire de la peinture et des dessins. J'ai étudié l'art à l'école secondaire mais je suis principalement un artiste autodidacte. Je décrirais mon style comme réaliste mais assez libre avec une attention particulière portée à la couleur, au contraste et à la forme, avec une réproduction fidèle des détails. J’aime peindre des tableaux avec des formes topographiques et des couleurs saisissantes. Plusieurs de mes tableaux démontrent des angles faiblement éclairés qui sont intéressants à cause de l’intéraction entre la lumière et l’ombre. J’aime le défi qui consiste à capturer la clarité du soleil sur les surfaces et les éléments naturels. Je suis membre de l’Association des Artistes de Beaconsfield. Mes autres passe-temps, en plus de la peinture, sont la photographie et l’astronomie.

I have always enjoyed painting and drawing. While I studied art in High School, I am mostly self-taught. I would describe my style as loose realism with attention to color, contrast and form with a faithful expression of detail. I prefer painting scenes with striking topographic expression and color, especially if there is an interplay of light and shadow. I enjoy the challenge of capturing the illumination of sunlight on natural surfaces and features. I am a member of the Beaconsfield Artists Association. As well as painting, my hobbies include photography and astronomy.
