I am a watercolour painter living near the Atlantic Ocean in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. For many years I have specialized in marine paintings about sailing, the coast, storms, and passage making, emerging from sailing the Atlantic Coast as crew member and navigator. I am known for using actual nautical charts, or painted interpretations in my compositions.

As time went on my subjects expanded to include the coast and the many lighthouses found in Nova Scotia. Then, I began an entirely different kind of painting: a mixed media series based on the silhouette of a dove.

Now, I live on the highest hill above Halifax. The view from my studio window stretches westward to the hills of Aspotogan, on the other side of St. Margarets Bay. From an easel setup in our bedroom I see hills, lakes, the harbour and part of the city. This environment has lead to a further expansion of subject matter which can be found on the “Different!” page on this website.

My paintings may be seen at my studio in Halifax, at Amicus Gallery, Chester, NS, and from June - October at Water’s Edge Gallery, Baddeck, NS.
