Oh the Places We’ll Go

I was born in Vancouver and, although I had done some travelling, I’d never lived anywhere else and never really expected to. Most of the photos in my phone were shots I’d taken around my neighbourhood as I’d taken the dog out in the early morning and evening.

Our move to Calgary has been such an amazing adventure. Many of my photos are still of our neighbourhood; however. there’s been so many times where I’ll turn the corner and find myself grinning ear to ear at some unexpected discovery.

In my landscape paintings I have started to blend the lessons in light and colour I learned through my stained glass paintings with those neighbourhood snapshots from my phone.

Traveling has always played an important role in my life. I was born in Apartheid-era South Africa and moved to Canada as an 8-month-old. Then, throughout my childhood and early adolescence, I moved back and forth between these two countries. I guess you could say I come from a geographically restless family.

For you, I know, it was different. Yet, when I got accepted into graduate school in Calgary, you bravely chose to leave behind the home you knew, to build a new home with me in Alberta. I’m so glad you did.

Your landscape paintings are among my favourites, the way you capture the light of a place and bring to life the colours that make them unique.
