Lime With a Twist
3' x 3' acrylic on stretched canvas
SOLD

I really want this in my living room. Too bad it's the wrong size. The background colour, well, it just rocks. The shapes are fun, almost like they're bubbling to the top.
Concentric Circles
5' x 3' acrylic on stretched canvas
$625

At one point this piece adorned our living room; the colors complement our furniture and add some much needed colour to the neutral paint on the wall.
St. John's Harbour
5' x 3' acrylic on stretched canvas
Not for sale

Perhaps my favourite painting—St. John's harbour. I'm not sure if it's the eclectic colours of jelly bean row or the memories this piece evokes that makes me love it. Probably both. 
Colour Squared
4' x 4' acrylic on stretched canvas
$625

I have been very tempted to keep this piece and hang it in my bedroom. I would love to wake up to the freshness it brings to a room every morning.
Bubbly
3' x 3' acrylic on stretched canvas
$450

The name says it all. Bubbly. This piece is bright, fun and colourful. It would do a great job at adding a punch of colour in any room!
The Secret of Happiness
2' x 2' acrylic on stretched canvas
Not for sale

I had a lot of fun painting this gift for my God-daughter's confirmation. I love the vibrant colours, various textures, and the whimsical, swirly letters.
Left-over Circles
3' x 2' acrylic on stretched canvas
$325

This was a bit of an experiment on using different objects to add colour to the canvas. Creating it was a lot of fun, and I really like the outcome.
What! No green?!?
3' x 3' acrylic on stretched canvas
SOLD

A client saw Colour Squared (above) and wanted something smaller to fit a specific wall in her house. She requested no green. You have no idea how hard it was for me to paint without using green. In the end, however, I enjoyed the challenge, and I like the way the colors came together. 
Blessing
4' x 2' acrylic on stretched canvas
Not for sale

This Bible verse is one of my mom's favourites, so it was a fitting gift for my parents.
Lotsa Circles
2' x 2' acrylic on stretched canvas
$250

I enjoy the progression from one color to the next on this piece. 
Jacob's Rectangles
3' x 2' acrylic on stretched canvas
$325

Painting at my house becomes a family affair at times. My four little fans share ideas, can be helpers, and are even critics at times. My nine year-old son shared this idea with me.
Spring Bloom
3' x 2' acrylic on stretched canvas
SOLD

Who doesn't love tulips! A colourful spring bloom against a bright spring sky—makes me think of Easter.
A Warm Welcome
Three 30" x 30" panels acrylic on stretched canvas
Not for sale

This was one of the first pieces I did and is one of my favourites. It hangs in our stairwell and greets people at the front entrance of our house.
Hot and Cold
30" x 40" acrylic on stretched canvas
$425

I had fun blending colours for this piece. Maybe a little heavy on the red for me, but, heh, lots of people like red.
Tulips
5' x 4' acrylic on stretched canvas
SOLD

Ahh tulips! I hope this piece reminds the client and her family of spring when they look at this in their renovated living room.
Swirls
3' x 3' acrylic on stretched canvas
SOLD

Swirls are a fun thing to put on a canvas too.
