*New! Matted Prints Under $30!

Matted Prints!

Framing a unique piece of art just isn't the same without a professional mat finishing it under your glass frame. I now offer a whole variety of my paintings as matted prints from 5x7" -11x14 inch.
Ranging from $10.00-$30.00

I ship world wide at affordable shipping costs so don't hesitate when thinking of purchasing a unique gift this holiday. (I know it's only the end of September, but hey...what the heck..."Tis the Season!!")


Thank You!

 Title: Antoinette
Medium: Watercolor & Acrylic on Canvas
Size: 4x4 ft.

"Antoinette" was inspired by modern day fashion designs along with the lavish and outrageous adornment of Marie Antoinette's style during the late 1700's. The art of fashion sketches is absolutely inspiring, with each gestural line being so important and creative these figurative sketches create fantastic ingredients for a stylized watercolor painting. As a subject Marie Antoinette was the perfect figure, with her "big hair" and outrageous styles I just had to bring her to life as a style icon in modern day art!

Thanks for reading!

23rd Anuual Art Auction!

 The very popular 23rd annual auction is coming up at the Kamloops Art Gallery on October 1st. 
(click on the poster above for more info)
It has been such a success for so many years because of their dedication to quality work, and by creating a fun, classy atmosphere with Black&White attire, live auctions, and live music! This year the gallery has invited me to donate a work of significant value. I have donated a 3.5x2 ft Acrylic Stain Painting called 'Sleek'
Don't miss out on this amazing event!

“Sleek” is part of a four piece set that was inspired by our world’s everlasting vintage fashions. For centuries the creativity in fashion adornment has been brought to life by each individual’s own style and grace. This is a constant inspiration to me, and enables me to create my own stylized voice in each gestural stroke, and in the colors I choose. To magnify the depth in this piece I have used a thin staining technique in the background, and thicker brush strokes in the figure which creates a much modernized twist to this vintage fashion.

**The other 3 part of the set are still available to purchase, and will not be part of the auction. **
