My work primarily focuses on landscape paintings in the Regionalist tradition. Influences include painters of the American Ashcan School, and the Canadian Group of Seven. Often in these industrial environments I try to evoke an emergent sense of place.
Earlier paintings were of specific places in and around the old industrial harbour of Toronto where my father worked for the Port Authority. While my subjects have broadened to include other post-industrial areas my intension is still to stem the fading from memory of such overlooked places and are as much psychological landscapes as specific representations.
