ART WORK AND PROCESSES

My focus as an exhibiting painter stretches from 1973 to the present with over a dozen one-person exhibits beginning in ’78 at the Mount Royal College art gallery followed by the Muttart Art Gallery, Calgary and with the Centennial Gallery. My work has been exhibited in group shows as an A.S.A. member in Ontario, Japan and Korea and throughout Alberta centres and was shown at Expo in Vancouver, and for the opening of the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo, Japan. My work is represented in many private and public collections. I paint with with water-based media save for a six year stint working as an etcher in the Studio of John. K. Esler, Calgary. Initially a watercolorist of the plein-air tradition my travels in Japan as an artist have directed me to utilize the unique textural properties of Japanese papers which I currently combine with watercolor and acrylic techniques. Working with mixed-media affords me opportunities to push the boundaries of my image-making: maintaining a sense of realism that verges on abstraction at times.
