Artist Statement

My artistic education has been self-directed relying on greatly on experimentation along with books, magazines, other artists and art related workshops.  I paint in acrylic and Acrylic, 48” x 30”mixed media on canvas with large brushes, painting knives and my hands.  Sometimes applied thickly and at times poured thinly, my paintings are impressionist, representational or abstract. Creating with paint is my way of investigating the mysteries and patterns of nature.  I like to explore silence, chaos, moments of beauty and decay, imagined and real.  I enjoy the process of building up and breaking down. I thrive on contrasts, shiny and dull, coarse and smooth, flat and textured, simple and complex, spontaneous or meditated.  I love texture and colour.

What’s Different about Different Strokes?

Different Strokes Art Gallery is committed to broadening the confines of what individuals think of when they hear the term "Gallery". We believe that art is not necessarily meant to be quiet and passive - a gallery should have the same passion for its exhibited artworks that the artists have for their own work. Different Strokes exhibits all forms of art by artists and artisans, mainly from Alberta, focusing on the artist and not just the art work. We welcome all art lovers to come in, be our guest, and appreciate the many different shapes, forms and sizes that art can take.
