Artist Statement

Current Work
I have been painting the landscapes around the Eastern Townships
of Quebec for over thirty years. I use my work as a form of communication, endeavouring to touch the viewer with a memory of a favourite time of day, 
a season or an angle of light. 

My paintings evoke walks in fields or quiet country roads, bunches of wildflowers. I use patterns and rhythms, shadows, branches, distant fields, 
to show informal glimpses of peaceful life. 
With a strong sense of design, my paintings sometimes verge on abstract. 

I paint from life.
I paint to tell surprise and delight in what I see.
