"Classical architecture, from rural homes found in the Canadian countryside, to French and Italian vestibules and drawing rooms, these are the foundations of my work. The paintings play upon the fine line between reality and slight surrealism, always drawing upon the viewer to move within the rooms. Streams of light poke through windows and doors into dim interiors, calling you to venture out. Entryways flanked by trees and English gardens, invite you to walk back in. My hope is to evoke the memories of the many spaces we’ve visited, lived in and the role they’ve played upon our senses."
