Artist Statement When I paint something, I am trying to make it look as real as I can. The impulse to mimic the physical appearance of the world around me has driven me to draw and paint since the age of 4. The closer I get to the visual truth of any subject matter, the more surreal and beautiful it becomes to me.
Having grown up in Calgary, Alberta, I am accustomed to the cohabitation of wild animals, natural landscapes and human civilization all in one place. The ancient tension between humanity and the natural world is beautifully embodied in the rapidly expanding city of Calgary, where I have lived since the age of 2 (I am now 44).
I majored in painting and drawing at the University of Calgary. I have been painting professionally for over 10 years.
