Sketches and large-scale paintings that respond to our primal human attraction to water. Within walking distance of where I lived, I stood at the shoreline of Lake Ontario and the water heightened my senses; it compelled me to explore, surround, and immerse myself.

Lost in the rhythmic patterns of the lake's ebb and flow, I contemplated the life that exists beneath the water's skin of surface tension. Entranced by the force of waves as they crashed against the shore, I endeavored to capture the lake’s power in paint.
