I am a visual artist living in Vancouver, Canada and working in a wide variety of media.
The art, poetry and photography that you see in my posts and pages are a growing selection of my past and recent work.
Text has played in and out of my own art for many years and I enjoy sharing and exploring the text-based artwork of other artists, past and present. My posts also stroll through a miscellany of subjects: poetic, humorous, food, reflective, art exhibitions and art historical; almost all with an art or text based art bias.
My personal creativity is strongly influenced by the Surrealist concept of Automatism. Intuition, chance, mystery, paradox and magic are the whispered words of my muse.
The process of the act of art enchants me. Mark making, painting and assembling become ritual acts that open doors in me and release the never-ending images of my subconscious.
Each piece I make is a deeply personal journey and each road is filled with laughter, surprise, wonder, frustration, doubt and always the unexpected.
Through my art in recent years I have explored the concept of ‘inner portraits’ and their seeming connections and relationships to the theater, masks, carnival and my ongoing rites of passage.
I have now published my professional art portfolio website. It is created with the single intention of showing my art in as simple and as formal a context as possible. My business card will point to this new website as will I when seeking the elusive showing opportunity. I welcome your visit and comments.
