I work out of Bunbury Studio at our property, Bunbury, on Salt Spring Island, B.C. where I am surrrounded and inspired by an overgrown and beautiful garden.
As a counterpoint to our quiet island, each year I am able to indulge in an enviable amount of travel. I enjoy a second kind of country life in Tuscany with my friend, Jamie Evrard who is also a dedicated artist. You can view her work at the Bau-Xi gallery site: www.bau-xi.com . We paint there but are lately much consumed with long bike-rides, inspiration of a quite different sort. Two years ago, we had an intriguing drawing adventure in Laos. Several pieces stemming from this trip were part of my March, 2017 show at the Bateman Galler, Artspring, Ganges. Images from this show and previous shows can be seen on my gallery pages.
During the past year and a bit, in addition to canvas and panel, I have been exploring the use of mylar as a surface for oil painting. Most of the pieces in my last show (Feb. 27 - Mar. 3, 2017) were on this interesting impermeable surface.
Late last year, I left Gallery 8 which had represented me on Salt Spring for many years. I am grateful to Razali Wahab, the owner of Gallery 8, for his considerable support through those years. It was an amicable parting and I may show my work there again in the future.
I am looking forward to hanging a solo show at Hedgerow House 238 Park Drive, Ganges, Salt Spring Island at the end of June, 2017. It can be seen through the month of July.
If you are interested in viewing my work, please contact me directly or through this site (phone: 250-537-2456). I love to show people my studio and I always have work in progress and in inventory.
