Marine Artist/Painter -Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada
I'm a marine landscape/seascape painter working in acrylics, watercolour and oil.
I paint most frequently in a realistic style; encorporating semi-abstract elements and modifying colours to improve composition and add interest and visual impact. Over the years, I've taken many life drawing classes and workshops in order to place figures in my work where they may tell a story by what they're doing; but mostly I enjoy the rugged beauty of the west coast marine scene.
I also enjoy painting some semi-abstract seascapes to try and capture the feeling of the west coast ocean's various moods.
We were west coast boaters for years, and were privileged to previously live on the waterfront, where my studio overlooked eastern Vancouver Island from Saanichton Bay, near Sidney, BC, just outside Victoria, in Canada. We're now enjoying retirement in Nanaimo, BC.
I'm pleased to have my work in some private and corporate collections across Canada and the US.
I've adopted a simple pricing system for paintings based on size. If you're interested in aquiring one which I've not priced, just drop a note to me from the CONTACTS page and I'll send you the price. (The price formula is increased slightly each year to protect collectors.)
