Winner of Jurors’ Award Art in the County 2016
“An ambitious painting, where areas of intense detail meet chance staining and seemingly unfinished passages. Devil’s Picker uses a local subject to address global questions of migration, agriculture, and labour.”
Save Ostrander Point
Ostrander Point is in the South Shore of Prince Edward County, an internationally known Important Bird Area (IBA) that has been described by Nature Canada as “a super highway for birds, bats and monarch butterflies”.
In Love With The County
This current series of paintings is inspired by my love and fascination for the island of Prince Edward County, Ontario, where I reside since 2013. The charming splendour of the island, surrounded by big Lake Ontario, continues to attract visitors to its shores and its vineyards. Many of them become residents, adding to the eclectic nature of the population. While focusing on the water, the wind, the terroir and people of “the county, my work addresses the importance of preserving the island’s natural environment and way of life.
