The Artwork

A painting of grey (white) Andalusian Mares with a bay foal quenching their thirst at a traditional trough on a hot summer's day. Completed in '96 I kept this painting in my collection for 16 years before I could part with it. It made me that happy and hung in a location where I would start every day with a moment of calm beauty. In 2012 I was invited to show at the St. Brigid's Centre for the Humanities "Our Roots" show. It was a show and a cause I could support with what was then my most treasured work. It won Best in Show, judged by Lilly Koltun. Mares is now making its new owner; a University Professor from the UofO happy and St. Brigid's is putting proceeds from the sale to good work.

The Artist

Why do you create? Because I am most happy as a person when I am creating.
How do you work? All the time, anywhere, anyway.
Has your creative process changed over time, if so, how? I have always just created those things that 'catch my eye' or are a result of a thought that I realize through a creative process.
Do you consider yourself a full-time or part-time artist? Full time, I work as a designer, (print and web) and as a fine artist.
Besides creating, where else do you spend your time? I enjoy the company of others and animals... there is nothing like a good brew, a glass of wine and a solid conversation about life, the universe, and everything.
What inspires you? Inspiration seems to come from everywhere...
What is the first piece of art you remember creating? A drawing of a bay coloured horse... I might have been 4 or 5 years old.
What does the term art mean to you? Art is 'any' expression or manifestation of someone's talents in the physical world...
Name three artists that you respect? Van Gogh, Dali, Da Vinci
What is your favourite piece of artwork? Starry Starry Night
What is your dream project? I think I have yet to work on that...
