About the Show:

"Open Concept" is a mixed media collection. The year 2020 is a time to focus on clear, bright, positive visions. My art allows me to be open with creativity, with no barriers. Bright colours flow using alcohol ink. Detailed, architectural drawings. Visually, emotionally, free-flowing acrylic paintings. I am inspired using different mediums, techniques, and ideas. 2020 is a great time and great way to view what is in front of us all. I am excited for this show and the outlook it will provide through my art.

About the Artist:

Born in Ottawa into a military family, lived in St. Thomas, Ontario, England, Trenton, Ontario, Borden, Ontario and settled in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Father is a retired General with the Canadian Armed Forces so life was experienced through very interesting eyes!

My artwork started out of necessity. Not out of a necessity for profit but out of a necessity for relief. My life has had many ups and downs and in 2012 it took a huge down. I suffered a severe back injury and my life became a turmoil of chronic pain. With chronic pain it is extremely difficult to concentrate. I was unable to read, I've never been a huge TV watcher. I needed something to take my mind off of the pain. I picked up a pencil and started drawing. Simple pencil drawings of flowers, animals, doodles were my first attempts. I then decided to try some more structured pen drawings of architecture; old, new, abandoned, historic. I could pick up a pen and sit up in bed for a few minutes at a time and escape from the pain. Through lots of medical intervention I have become more mobile but still very limited in certain things. My art is my escape! I am self-taught in all mediums that I have ventured to try. This is not a sad story nor a story of sympathy. It is a true narrative of how art has been my escape, my breaking free and my distraction
