Northern Canadian landscapes astound me. I am fortunate to have family who live there and friends from canoe tripping that capture such awe inspiring photos.
I feel calm and balanced here. The limited palette allows the true landscape and mood of the moment in time take place.

Whenever I paint our Northern Canada, I find myself describing it having a spiritual element. I love the story behind this area, whereby every spring, there is an abundance of Arctic char floating down the rivers stream, they can be seen jumping up, almost like they are joyful and dancing. The waters are treasured and respected in this land and I live that the landscape gives that feeling and emotion when I paint it.
