Artist’s Statement

I work with oil and acrylics and thoroughly enjoy translating photographs I have taken onto canvas. I have a special relationship with the colour blue and I integrate it in my paintings, because it reminds me of The Nile River in Egypt and the beautiful Canadian East Coast. My own work naturally reflects the passion I have for the sea and nature.
