Within the medium of oil and acrylic painting, my goal is to inspire people to make positive changes within themselves and the world around them, sometimes using metaphorical imagery with clear meaning, often left open to the viewer’s interpretation, but with an overall feeling that there is love and order even in a seemingly chaotic world. Although I make an effort to be aware of current events and culture, my paintings don’t target a specific time and place in order for my works remain relevant across cultural and generational borders.

As my work typically uses a combination of subject matter to communicate ideas, I’ve gravitated to surrealism as it allows me to juxtapose recognizable images in fresh ways to visualize spiritual realities that cannot be seen.

Having been painting from a very young age, I been advancing in my career in art as a full time profession for the last 10 years. Dozens of successful murals and many years of teaching art and painting in public have allowed me interaction with others and a versatility that I would not have achieved with a studio-only art practice. These opportunities have also helped improve my technical skill and ability to communicate.

Within the last 5 years, my paintings have been gaining more acceptance into national and international juried exhibitions while also achieving greater recognition among art professionals and collectors. This is partly due to my involvement in the Water for Life International Art Exhibitions and the Federation of Canadian Artists.
