Artist's Statement

From my earliest memory I have always drawn and painted.

While still very young, my mother introduced me to the joy of sewing by machine.  I now combine my love of painting and drawing with sewing on my own hand-painted fabrics using a wide variety of threads and water-soluble materials in a painterly fashion.

There is a certain satisfaction I get from the close relationship between myself and my beloved, old sewing machine and the feel of the resulting canvas when all is done.  

The beauty of a flower or a human face, the sparkle of sun on water, a jack pine leaning with the wind, images of rural Ontario, the play of light and shadow and the beauty and serenity of Mother Nature - all intrigue and challenge me.
