This piece is part of my "Plein Air" Collection of Originals that are painted live on location directly from nature. 'Plein Air' is a french term and translates to "open air" which is referring here to the artist going outside to paint in the open air. I have found that there is an intensity, and energy, and life, in my plein air paintings that I can never reproduce in the studio or from a photograph which is why all of my plein air work is completed on location. This makes these pieces unique works of art where I have translated the landscape into impressions of paint and color.
I am a contemporary Canadian artist working and living in Whistler, BC, Canada. My body of work extends across many different subjects and mediums. I was a drawing major in art school, after which I moved into oil painting for a number of years and for the last 4 years have been focusing primarily on stone sculpture. Nature and people have always been consistent themes in my work and over the past few years, I have also been drawing a lot of inspiration from the animal kingdom. I do find I like to have a balance in my work of both realism as well as expression and interpretation. I have shown my work in various different venues from galleries to museums to alternative spaces and have my art in collections around the world.
