Artist Statement

I paint my current surroundings in the present moment. I layer deliberate, large brush strokes to evoke the feeling of a familiar location. The colors and light from a cityscape or landscape inspire me. I hope to bring the viewer to the present moment with these images. We spend significant time dwelling in the past or worried about the future. I strive to be in the moment and bring people to the present by painting the world around me.

My formal training is in business and engineering. In business, one is constantly negotiating the past and future, using the past to assess future risks and propositions – it is never in the present. In engineering; estimates, theories and calculations collected from our senses are used to predict future outcomes.

The constant improvement required in both fields makes me long to paint and immersing myself in present moment.

Current projects

My paintings of cityscapes and landscapes connects with people and their memories. This has inspired me to work on a project create new memories from past Canadian artists.

Recently I’ve been using painting to cross disciplines into engineering I am investigating a process to automate painting using robotics.
