As an artist, I have always I have been fascinated by the natural beauty of the Canadian landscape and trying to capture its splendor through painting. My paintings can be either en plain air, mural, or studio. By combining my love of landscape painting and the tradition of trompe l’oeil, I have found a way to communicate on several different levels through my murals. The illusion of trompe l’oeil offers the chance of discovery, to perceive all the details inside and escaping the illusion in my murals. I aim not to deceive, but to reveal the illusion. This meeting place, between the real thing and the painted thing, brings the viewer to the edge of the illusion, only to assert that the reality is the paint. Although the deception may appear only momentarily, it is an instant of being deceived. And once the illusion has dissolved, what remains will be the painting all on its own and draw in the viewer to spend time exploring all the details and visual delights each mural has to offer.
