I love to “push paint around,” that is, to experiment and improvise with color, form,technique, and texture. Most of my work is created intuitively or from memory, without specific reference material or preconceived notions of the final result. However, I must admit to being aware of, and influenced by, the natural world; in particular, the wild scenery which surrounds me here at the northeastern tip of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Each of my paintings becomes an exploration using different approaches,techniques, and materials. These might include ink, paint, collage, sand, stone or whatever I think will best express the effect I am trying to accomplish. I enjoy painting intuitively, using large palette knives with thick paint.
