In the Studio – Sketching on Paper

In the Studio – Sketching on Paper

I try to get into the studio every day, at least for a few minutes. Some days that means flipping on the light before dawn while I drink my coffee, grabbing a quick look at whatever I’ve got in progress before heading off to whatever damned thing is going to keep me away from my […]

Goodbye Now Sweet Summer

Goodbye Now Sweet Summer

It’s been a spectacularly beautiful summer here. I’ve hung both I Am The Sailor and Wild White Veils in my living room – it makes me feel like I’m swimming in the cool sparkling waters of the lake near my home. Just like the rippling waters of a lake or the ocean, these paintings are complex, dark, moody […]

Upcoming Show, New Work and Some Summer Fun In the Sun

Bye Bye 2018

They had read an article in the Home section of their […]

Spring!

After weeks and weeks of ice and snow, it’s so good to feel the warmth of the sun. I’ve been holed up in my little studio working on a new subset of my Mare Incognitum project. My latest paintings are all small pieces in acrylic, 10″ x 10″. I’m exploring a colour palette and mark-making […]

Looking Back, Looking Ahead

January is flying by! I’ve been taking some time to look at what I accomplished in 2015 and set my intentions for 2016. I don’t make resolutions and I don’t beat myself up over what I did or didn’t get done. My process is more about looking at what worked and what didn’t throughout the previous year. I […]

101 Days of Handlettering: Highlights

Some highlights from a handlettering project I did in 2016:
