Having moved fairly recently to the Okanagan, I am fascinated with the landscape of the valley and love to paint the vineyards, water and hills. 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. I paint mainly in acrylic in an impressionistic style but also use pen and ink and watercolour. I paint En Plein Air (outdoors) whenever I can as I feel this captures the true essence of the landscape.
