I am so honoured to announce that I have been awarded a generous grant by Canada Council for the Arts to fund my proposed painting series Antarcticus. Grant funding is highly competitive and I look forward to beginning this exciting new series of large scale paintings.

Although it will be some time before these works are complete I wanted to share a "sneak peak" at the inspiration behind my proposal for Antarcticus.

 

Below is a photo of the island Mauritius, it is one of the places that has inspired the proposal I wrote for Antarcticus, and my father's birthplace. Below this is a photo of the Antarctic, the second location that inspired me when reading correspondance from my uncle who worked as a sailor on Antarctic expeditions in the seventies.
