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 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.
I’ve known Jackie for many years. She has always had a passion for art. I love the substrates she’s working with these days. Her work is truly an inspiration!
