Opening Reception: Fri May 3, 7-9pm 

The Shores of Erie showcases the fragility of this Southwestern area of Ontario and the migratory route of many butterflies and birds. There are select plants that are only native to this area. Each branch, each rotted log and waterway gives and supports life in the extension of the Carolinian area that runs from this area down the Eastern Coast of the USA. My paintings strive to show through their colours, blurring, and blends, the flow of life not only in nature but on canvas as well. I want the public to realize that everything cut, taken down or cleared, will have a domino effect, which eventually leads to us. This is my encouragement to continue to paint, showing how everything in nature is in balance. Stories are not only told on paper, they also exist on canvas.
