I draw my inspiration from many sources; the waters and limestone cliffs of the Bruce Peninsula and the shorelines of Lake Superior and Georgian Bay. I particularly love the north shore of Georgian Bay near Killarney and the rugged coastline near my home on the Bruce Peninsula. I am fascinated by the powerful forces that have shaped the landscape and the effects that time and weather have had upon the earth’s surface.
