“My art reflects my process of viewing and experiencing nature as I remember it, that random pendulum of intensity and tranquility, the shape, colour, line, and texture I associate with nature’s wonders, beauty and complexity. All coloured by an adult’s remembrance of childhood imagination and fancy.”

“Art provides us with a way to experience ourselves in relation to the universe, and thus is an experience of the mysterious.”
– Vladimir Breskin

Experience the Mysterious
Only my most recent original  Pen & Ink on Sculpted Paper Artworks to preview for your singular experience

Through my work I offer an opportunity to re-experience meaningful or intimate interactions with nature, perhaps captured during childhood when those experiences were more magical than common

As new original works are completed, I share them directly through email to you including their pertinent details such as title, dimensions and availability — along with a quote I feel supports the work in some manner.

“It is truly fascinating how you captured the image so organically you not only see the painting, but you feel it.”Jenna Eline

“Every time I see one of your works I want to reach out and touch them; the tree images especially. I can visualize the rough feel of the bark and the cool wind on my neck. Thank you for the wonderful emotions your work evokes.”

Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) is in effect beginning July 1, 2014. 

CASL applies to all commercial electronic messages sent from, or received by, a Canadian mail server. CASL differs from CAN-SPAM by requiring businesses to obtain express permission from recipients before sending commercial emails (CEMs). (The purpose  of CEMs is to encourage the recipient to participate in commercial activity. For example: A tagline in a message that promotes a product or service that encourages the recipient to purchase that product or service; offers to purchase, sell, barter or lease a product, goods, a service, land or an interest or right in land; offers to provide a business, investment or gaming opportunity; promoting a person, including the public image of a person, as being a person who does anything referred to above, or who intends to do so.)
