Artwork, Acrylic and Oil and Metalwork

THE OBJECT ISN’T TO MAKE ART, IT’S TO BE IN THE WONDERFUL STATE WHICH MAKES ART INEVITABLE. – Robert Henri

What am I working on -
What have I worked on –
What motivates me to do this?

I work with different painting techniques and paints, working with both oil and acrylic paints and dabble in welding. I enjoy concentrating on items that are mostly for functional use.

As well as paintings on canvas, I try to work with items that will be used regularly and often, calling my work – “functional art”. Some items that I have worked on are Adirondack chairs (Muskoka chairs), a moose antler, and I am currently working on interior and exterior murals, and a garage door/overhead door.

Commissioned works are a big part of what I do. Clients see their idea brought to life with my skills and creativity as I add my artistic uniqueness. I find it extremely rewarding and motivating when clients are excited as they see their finished piece for the first time. Their expectations met and surpassed with what I have created. Creating is making people happy and that brings me a lot of joy and solidifies my decision to follow my passion.

My intention as an Artist is to bring love and healing to whomever sees my artwork as I create functional artworks.

Canvas

It really brings me joy, and to save that moment for years to come and have many people enjoy my paintings, hopefully feeling that calmness, the love and joy I feel when I first see the inspirations is truly inspiring to me.

Antlers makes indelible Impression!

Inspirations for my paintings come from Mother Nature, and Father Sky, the earth, and all that is around us.
