The way we interact with our environment influences the way we see things and frame the things we see. We take insubstantial, fragmented images and fill them out to make complete narratives.

It is this tension between the negative space, what is withheld from the frame of the painting and what is suggested that engages the viewer in a conversation with my work. I am showing part of a picture or world which exists beyond the realm of the canvas in the mind of the viewer. This conversation between the viewer and the painting, between description and abstraction is the most vital element of my painting.


Here’s another from my archives. It’s been a favourite. It’s inspiration is drawn from the view from cherry beach , through the canopy of trees there looking towards the city .

It’s 48x56” oil on canvas from about 10 years ago.

Amazing to think of how time flies and how much has happened in that time but the trees at cherry beach are still magnificent in their canopies.
