Born and raised in the Calgary AB area, I graduated from Architecture at the University of Manitoba and developed a career in Project Management and construction. Though this cultivated the left side of my brain, only flickers of creativity were able to be explored for the right side.
In my early twenties, I became an avid world traveller gaining cultural inspiration from over 35 countries visited to date. From sipping tea in Turkey and wandering the peaks of Machu Picchu, to 4x4’ing through the Serengeti, these experiences are where I discovered my true passion is derived and what became the subject matter for my artistic dream; decrepit building scapes, phenomenal mountain landscapes and most prominently, wildlife.
I began to build on my travel experiences initially through sketching and photography, and later painting. The questions I asked were; how could I compose an image to make it unique and compelling? How can I play with light and shadow to create awe and interest? How do I evoke emotion through perspective?
It's become a personal challenge bringing to life the vividness and detail my eyes see when I contemplating my next piece. I get a thrill for how real I can make the image look, but usually with a fun twist. This has developed my style into fine, detailed brush strokes, pops of color, a zoomed in perspective, and emphasis on light and contrast in order to captivate my audience.
