Having moved fairly recently to the Okanagan Valley and British Columbia, I am fascinated with the landscape of the valley and British Columbia. I am interested in the play of light and shadow and like to use intense and rich colours in my acrylic landscapes. I take delight in the rhythm of the rows of vines, the gentle hills with dry brush growing on them and the ever changing lake colours. The mountains and lakes further afield provide inspiration from many camping trips to the "beyond". I paint En Plein Air (outdoors) whenever I can on these camping trips as I feel this captures the true essence of the landscape.
