A Walk In The Woods, Painting and Inspiration

A Walk In The Woods, Painting and Inspiration

Snow has fallen early in my little corner of the world, but I wanted to share some of the sights and insights that have been inspiring me lately. I’ve been finishing up the work I was doing over the summer, which more often than not just means letting the paintings sit for awhile, until they […]

New Paintings: Mare Incognitum

New Paintings: Mare Incognitum

“Water is formless. Yet the lack of form implies neither chaos nor fragmentation. Water enjoys the purest unity, a seamlessness that can never be torn. The hydrogen within it accounts for its magical ability to stay congealed.” – John O’Donoghue   I’ve recently completed several paintings that I’ve been working on since spring. The two […]

Conversations With Muggles

Conversations With Muggles

So. Following my exhortation last week asking people to consider buying original art instead of cheap screen prints, I got into a discussion in which someone asked me (in what I felt was a rather disingenuous way) if abstract art is still in style. They had read an article in the Home section of their […]

Aside from some minor touch ups to do in that dark sea-blue area at the bottom, this one is done! It’s been a brutally hot summer in a lot of places, so I hope you’ll enjoy some these cool ocean vibes. I sometimes have a hard time finishing work… my process is very spontaneous and exploratory, […]

New Year, New Work

My website has just been updated with several pieces from my new series, MARE INCOGNITUM. I’ve been exploring my experience of painting in the context of a journey, an adventure and as a way to delve into the unknown. Last spring, I set out to build on the visual language from my previous body of work, […]

August Roundup

I can’t believe we’re already heading into the last two weeks of August. It feels like the summer has gotten away from me, as I’ve been super busy with all kind of art things as well as with work. I have a job for the summer that’s taking up a lot of my time, but […]

UPCOMING SHOW… Symposium des Arts du Domaine Saint-Bernard

There are 35 artists presenting their work and I feel honoured to be among their number. […]
