I began a committed study of art making in 1997. For the first thirteen years, I studied materials, tools and techniques with a variety of artists in a number of disciplines, focusing particularly on landscape painting and then, western calligraphy. Beginning in 2010, I met a series of teachers who cumulatively launched me past predictable, unoriginal forms into increasingly abstract work, deeply connected to evolving consciousness. Along the way, I was influenced by a number of artists who are masters of fluidity, and enabled by two mentors. I joined Gage Gallery Arts Collective in Victoria, BC in 2017.
I now paint as an explorer. I am grateful for the Gage Gallery ethos and its community of artists around whom all things are possible.
I am based in Sidney, BC.
