About

“Informed by a late Modern interpretation of abstraction, my current practice typically moves between painterly and post-painterly interpretations of cultural history and biomorphic forms. The age and patina of old walls, scraps of manuscripts, natural forms, etc. provide sources for the textures and compositions I use in my work. Whatever the source, I attempt to balance the pre-planned with the immediacy of the painting process itself, so that the images created are able to convey universal themes as well as to allow for variations in interpretation.”

Scugog Arts

Scugog Arts is a creative hub: awakening, inspiring, and connecting you to all the arts. We are an arts space on Queen Street in Port Perry with Resident Artists, monthly exhibitions, and workshops for artists and visitors. Scugog Arts also organizes and hosts multi-arts cultural events, literary programs, festivals, and tours.

Scugog Arts connects the community with public art displays such as our Art You Can Sit On, a memorial to Bill Lishman, ceiling tiles for the hospital, and live theatre and music in the back lot.

Scugog Arts is funded by individual donors, Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation, Vos’ Independent Grocery, Old Flame Brewery, Canadian Tire Port Perry, Central Counties Tourism, and the Canada Summer Jobs program of the Government of Canada. Fundraising efforts always focus on unique ways and various arts disciplines with engaging entertainment for supporters.
