My recent oil and mixed media works depict curious, dreamlike scenes. Sites explored while traveling abroad, landscapes discovered around BC, and places visited locally in my everyday contribute to these pictures. Memories, imaginings, and my source photographs are fused, morphing into fantastical abstract landscapes.
 
These unlikely spaces often revisit familiar landscape tropes - with oceans, mountains, forests, and desert terrain meeting my less literal visual language of paint swaths, arcs, and floating forms. These images are intentionally ambiguous, inviting viewer interpretation and personal narrative.

Incorporating ink transfers of my own photography, I attempt to blur boundaries between media; I embrace mysterious transitions between the photographic transfers and the realistic application of paint amid more abstract forms. Hints of photography amid the painted fictions lend credibility to these imagined spaces.

Celestial, terrestrial, and aquatic motifs are present throughout the series. Ideas of regeneration, cycles, and the search for structure within ephemeral, fluid spaces seem to be recurring considerations.
