I was not born to become an artist, but my whole life has changed since moving to the Yukon wilderness. The breath taking scenery of the Yukon landscape didn't take very long to lure me into becoming an artist.
My main source of images comes from a multitude of memories and visions of the North that I have experienced from living in the wilderness for many years. They are created in a poetic, mysterious, and dreamlike atmosphere. The multiple colours of the wild flowers, the long and short hours of sunlight, the serene winter scene, the unexpected encounters with wild animals, and the ever-changing weather conditions are etched into my mind. Painting is my way of practicing Zen in an artist's way. It is my way of meditation with arms, eyes, body, and mind. I like to observe things slowly and thoughtfully as Zen practice requires a great deal of patience and discipline. Through patience and discipline, I develop my visual language and master craftsmanship.
