Artist Statement

My creative voice uses the tools of photography and painting to digitally articulate a visual image. My art process begins with an assemblage of several original photographs that I digitally push and pull around until a message appears. And a message always appears from overlaying several photographs, painting surfaces with a digital brush and folding up shapes using a vector of spaces.

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Emily Carr University of Art & Design and I have attended Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity. I recently retired from teaching university-level visual design programs for over 20 years. My art has been in local exhibitions and my short films have been distributed internationally.

Sometimes your only mode of transportation is a leap of faith.
