Passing Through, Walterdale Bridge,
Edmonton's river valley

I've wanted to paint the new Walterdale Bridge for quite some time. I finally got a chance to paint it for my client Jennifer and just finished it! Jennifer's family is moving to Calgary soon and they will have an amazing keepsake of Edmonton with them there! Paper giclee prints that are 12"x16" are now available for $45 and I also have canvas giclee reproductions in various sizes now available. It takes about 5 business days for your stretched giclee to be ready for your order and I stock the paper prints and greeting cards for a quick turnaround. Like all of my canvas giclees it comes wired on the back, signed and ready to hang on your wall to enjoy! I also have it available as 5"x 7" greeting cards now. They are blank inside for your special message.

Fresh off the easel - Beautiful "Northside" spots in Edmonton...
A client of mine (Michelle) commissioned me to paint 3 paintings of Edmonton that are super special to her as she goes for walks with her dog Poppy to them. I'm thrilled to show them to you all and will do prints of them by request. They are a fabulous addition to my Edmonton river valley series as they represent the "north side" of Edmonton. Previously I have done one painting of the "northside" of the beautiful wall of fire (what I call the row of Sugar Maples along 97 Street in the fall); and that painting is called Canadian Forces Way. So its fabulous to have the Northside better represented now for my series of Edmonton! You can find that other painting I did under shop my collections - fall. Now I have more unique nature spots in our beautiful city to share. And here they are....
"The Fountain", Rundle Park
12"x16" Acrylics on Birch wood panel
Rundle Park is a beautiful park located in the North East side of Edmonton. I loved painting this beautiful fountain and it is an iconic spot in this park. If you're interested in reproductions of this painting contact me. I haven't ordered prints of it yet, but will upon special request.
Among the Wild Flowers, North East Trails, Edmonton river valley
12"x16" Acrylics on Birch wood panel
There is a new beautiful subdivison and trails on the North East side and I'm thrilled to have had the opportunity to paint these beautiful wild flowers by the river. If you're interested in reproductions of this painting contact me. I haven't ordered prints of it yet, but will upon special request.
Morning Bliss, Hermitage Park
12"x16" Acrylics on Birch wood panel
Years ago I lived in Clareview for a while and Hermitage Park is a beautiful park in that area of Northeast Edmonton. Painting this brought back memories of this trail and the railroad that goes over the valley. It is so lush in that area and such a beautiful escape from it all. If you're interested in reproductions of this painting contact me. I haven't ordered prints of it yet, but will upon special request.
Mini Original Canola's now available
Sample showing a diptych, (two) pushed together.
I'm so excited to offer these experimental, textured,mini oil paintings for the first time. I haven't painted any minis for my collectors as I've been focused on larger paintings since pursuing my art full time. It is a full circle moment for me as when I first started painting many years ago I did minis in watercolours. These are experimental works inspired from my Alberta Travels to Camrose, Stony Plain all the way to Waterton Lakes. These mini paintings of canola fields are 5"x7" "oil" on a cradled birchwood canvas so you can place it on a stand or hang it on the wall. You'll love the textures and they will brighten up any room. I will custom create more as requested, so if I'm sold out of one I can recreate one similiar of it for you. I will also be painting mini wheat fields as well. I'm just getting started!
They are $125 each and I have numbered them so let me know which one you are interested in by selecting it below.
Just released as well...introducing my Blossoms oil painting series
Inspired by the blossoms in the river valley, this is my textured experimental oil blossom series on tondo's! These 4 paintings are the beginning of this series and they are all now available and are on a 14" cradled birch wood panel.
I've wanted to offer an experimental style of my originals at a super affordable pricepoint for quite some time. These Blossoms start at only $300 for a 14" round tondo birch wood panel. They are created in a more abstract, looser, textured style in oils. I will also do custom orders of other Blossoms according to size. Click on the link "view details" for more information.

All 3 are available as paper prints the same size or giclee canvas reproductions stretched and ready to hang on the wall to enjoy!
At the end of July during Phase 3 of the Covid 19, I was finally able to go on a business road trip to re-spark my creativity and to take reference photos of what I would like to paint in our beautiful country; and this spot and painting has started my new "On the Road Again" and are part of my Canadiana painting series. When I was there it is like being in a holy sanctuary to me, so utterly beautiful and awe inspiring. People travel from all over the world to visit this Unesco World Heritage Site in Lake Louise and they will again when this passes. Paper and giclee canvas reproductions are now available and in stock. Stay safe everyone and enjoy the beauty around us...

Our Beloved Simba
Acrylics on Birch wood panel
It was a pleasure to paint this for my client and her family as a memory of Simba. While painting Simba I became very attached to him.
Commissions like this are always a pleasure to do. Enquire within if you'd like one done too. You can also look under my commissions page to see the wide variety that I have done.
Tonik on the Dock
Acrylics on Canvas
This original was painted for Kim to give as a gift to a loved one. What a special gift to receive of a beloved dog Tonik. It was such a pleasure to make Kim's vision of what he wanted painted into a reality! I can do that for you too.
This custom mosaic pillar that I designed, created and installed transformed the pillar that used to be there. This project was done in my studio and then installed onsite.
