Flower photo collage

Contemporary floral collage art, Halifax, Nova Scotia artist

A big influence in my art and life is the nature that surrounds me. I live in a semi-rural part of Halifax, Nova Scotia. I see the same lining of trees behind my house every time I pull into my driveway, but rarely fail to appreciate and feel grateful for my surroundings.

Another, distinct influence on me is the paintings of Gustav Klimt. His work is decorative, often employing gold leaf and apologetically beautiful. Klimt was influenced by Japanese art and the flatness of the picture plane. Although my artistic process is entirely different, as are the results, at times I feel his influence on my work.
