“Painting is my means of communicating my most intimate impression of nature, my emotional reaction to life, my keen and lifelong interest in our Rural Heritage and my deep feeling about my subjects and my world around me. The medium I use is mostly watercolour or egg-tempera, and although most of my work is done in my studio, I take extensive breaks hiking around rural Ontario in search of new subjects, new ideas and new inspirations,”
As an artist I try to interpret nature because it is also my basic believe, that nature is a true source of peace. If my work is effective in communicating that belief, then it speaks for me and I would like to think, that I have succeeded in this effort.”
