I am currently working in oils and soft pastels. Living where I do, in a rural area on the shore of Georgian Bay, I tend to paint landscapes, and subjects within the landscape, most of which do not involve human presence.

Soft pastels give me the option of pushing the medium around with my fingers to get different effects. Oils open up a completely different discipline which I enjoy. I started with watercolours and when I look back, each medium’s characteristics and techniques get carried forward in a subtle way to inform my current work.
