"Today you are you! There is no one is alive that is you-er than you!" - Dr. Seuss
We all see things differently, and take inspiration from different sources and people in life. I’ll share some of my inspirations and visions on how I see the world around me on this page
Jellybean Hill is such a sweet AND rugged destination! Beginning in St. John's was a treat and hiking up Battery Hill was delightful! Every one of my Jellybean Hill paintings is SOLD as fast as I can make it. I would be happy to make one for you if you have a space in your home that needs a bubbly burst of colour!
St. Nicholas Abbey
This painting is magical and very meaningful to me. I have been visiting Barbados for over 30 years and it was only when my brother Bruce tagged along on a vacation with us that I visited St. Nicholas Abbey. We were completely immersed in the beauty and the history of this stunning Jacobean Mansion dating back to the 1600s. I made a request that this painting become a puzzle and Pomegranate made it happen.
On a trip to take our daughter to study in London, she suggested we route through Edinburgh to check out the area. Culross is an enchanting 6th-century village filled with charming cottages and tangled gardens. I snuck into this garden with my camera and met the owner. I described for him A.J. Casson's "The Tangled Garden" as this one reminded me of that much-beloved work. I added the super moon as it was a perfect source of light for this evening scene!
Really! Is it just me or is this a photo of an ice mermaid? This was from our first trip to Newfoundland and Fogo Island to chase icebergs. While studying at the Ontario College of Art, I always walked by a powerful Henry Moore statue at the corner of Dundas and McCaul. This painting is my homage to his "Reclining Nude" which he created in 1950. Timeless beauty is what I see.
