About

I am a self-taught artist, exhibiting my abstract landscapes professionally since 2007. In addition to a lifetime of drawing and painting, I also have extensive experience with photography and print making.

I show in galleries and stores across Toronto and Ontario. In addition to being a member of the Ontario Society of Artists, I am the founder of Colourshift Collective and SolidColour.

Why We’re One of a Kind

Canadian birches remind me of my native Scottish trees; they were just one of the many things that made this wonderful new country feel like home. Like me they are a hardy northern species that thrives best in cooler climates.


The process begins with photographing bare birch trunks in the winter. I use a process that transfers the ink from the photo directly into the paint on the canvas, then I paint in the leaves.

Primary Materials

Most work uses acrylic paint and phototransfers of birch trunks on canvas or birch panels. Some work also features embroidery and linocuts.
