Winner of the Picasso (Community Members) category at the 2013 Brain & Mental Health Art Show.
My works are interpretations within two-dimensional imagery. Metaphoric images from Judeo-Christian, Aboriginal and ancient cultures that are incorporated into an eclectic portfolio. My paintings push the interpretations by their distortion of the tangible human anatomical structure. The works show the expressiveness of oil paint and drawing materials within the Contemporary Canadian Art Field.
Living with schizoaffective disorder, there are always two fighting sides, the restrained lower emotional medicated self versus the higher emotional non-medicated self. The temptation to stop the medications to achieve the higher level of emotions, to paint greater works, constantly battles on as shown in this artwork.
