ARTIST who paints
primarily in oil and water colour but also favours graphite &
mixed media. My work usually reflects social awareness or
personal experience but occassionally I paint landscape in honour
of the beauty that surrounds my island home.
I studied Graphic Design and Studio Painting at Stockport College and the University of Salford in the UK. I also studied Illustration and Art Education at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.

This image is based on the fossilized remains of an Archaeopteryx. The painting also refers to the poem 'Great Bird of Sorrow' as it reveals a variable host of demons - dependent on the viewer's perception.
