Statement

I graduated with honours from the Vancouver School of Art then worked in dance and illustration before returning to the visual arts in 1995. I have received numerous awards & grants and my work has been exhibited & sold in Canada, the US, France & China. In the paintings shown here, I am exploring the transition between an idea and its realization and between an idea realized in one dimension then translated into a third. This relates to the concept that the observer not only influences what is observed but can direct that influence in a positive or negative way. It also reflects my interest in creating both sculptures & paintings. I try to re-create on canvas the pleasure and intensity of experience that flows from creativity and to communicate that experience.  This is based on the assumption that the joy of expressing imaginative ideas arising from within is available to all human beings
