“I Frequently Go There…” at Earls Court Gallery, Hamilton

My joint exhibition at Earls Court Gallery in Hamilton, with the amazing pastel artist Clarence Porter, continues until November 11. My body of work for the show consists of abstracted landscape-based work, filled with the textures and colours, and the play of light and shadow that I encounter daily on my walks, swims and paddles in the rugged and wild part of Ontario that I live.

“I Frequently Go There…” : dual exhibition at Earls Court Gallery, Oct 5 – Nov 11 2017

“I Frequently Go There…” is the title of the exhibition at Earls Court Gallery, Hamilton, of new work by myself and by landscape artist Clarence Porter. The show pairs work inspired by environments beloved by each – my organic, abstract cold wax paintings, lush with the colours, light and textures that surround me on the wild east side of Algonquin Park, and moody, poetic pastel landscapes of Cootes Paradise in Hamilton, by Clarence Porter.
Opening reception is Thursday, October 5, 7 – 9 pm, with both artists in attendance.

Getting ready for Bancroft Studio Tour!

The Bancroft Studio Tour is coming up fast! Black Spruce Art Works is a destination on the tour on the weekends of September 16, 17 & 23, 24. My guest artist is the amazing, award winning painter Carol Westcott.
My own work continues to be very much inspired by the surrounding landscape here in Hastings Highlands, and is at times verging towards the abstract.
