2009, Acrylic on canvas, 36”w x 36”h
My work reflects the nature and lifestyle of family and friends from my hometown: Moose Factory Island in northern Ontario. Winter is my favorite season of the year, and my work captures the playful energy of those enjoying the great outdoors. Allen Sapp’s work brings me back to a time and place during my childhood of playing in the snow with family. It has inspired me to pursue landscape painting, which allows me to explore figurative compositions within a landscape setting. Loose brushstrokes capture the essence of the openness of winter scenery and freshness of harmonized colors. Painting winter landscapes enables me to explore and experiment with textural content and underlying colors of crystallized snow and observe the lively interaction between each figure caught in a moment of innocent playfulness. The cool colors of snow add an inviting atmospheric feeling, creating a sense of space and openness.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.
Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
