An Adoration for nature is expressed on her canvasses. Conceived through a unique impulse, these
recent paintings are created in the style of “Realism In Fantasy”. In this series of works you can sense hints of romance through evocative compositions of nature, executed with a modernist expression and abstraction.
Her creations are displayed at her Southampton home/studio, she accepts commissions.

“You see the soul of the landscape beyond its physical majesty.
I feel like I am inside these places”.
“Evocative, Ambient and Atmospheric”.

Artist Statement
My work is an exploration of realism in fantasy;
I have a strong passion to recreate nature in a fantasy atmosphere on canvas and hopefully,
give pleasure to people's imaginations. 
Nature's magic work on earth, organic shapes and patterns created by its force inspires me. My paintings are the moods and colours of Lake Huron, the rocky beauty of Georgian Bay and Muskoka region, shorelines and fauna of Southampton and Lake Ontario.

Reflections On Universe “Reflections On Universe”

I have imagined the dome shaped sky above these Cathedrals of Nature as universe.
It's reflections on earth and water create our beautiful planet.
Inspired by the Bluffs of Toronto on shores of Lake Ontario

Mystical Autumn “Mystical Autumn”

Slowly turning from greens to warm hues, these islands become more inviting in Autumn.
I was inspired by undulating grey clouds against the pale yellow sky, the playful reflections on smooth surface of the lake.

This painting expresses my excitement about the scene which pushed me to a new level with my art. I hope my viewers enjoy it.

In The Morning Mist “In The Morning Mist”

Early in the mornings, beautiful Blue Heron,
fly from her sanctuary on Chantry Island, to grace our shores

In The Garden “In The Garden”

Motherly love exceeds any other.

Sleeping Rock “Sleeping Rock”

It is the early hours of the day, nature is still asleep on Muskoka Lakes
