Forest to Shore

In my "Forest to Shore" painting collection, I explore the natural landscapes around my home in Muskoka.

There's a distinct charm in the transition from the dense forests to the open shores—a charm that I aim to capture with each landscape painting I create.

My paintings are more than just scenes; they are my genuine attempts to capture the essence of Muskoka's summers, from the cool, shaded woodland trails to the warm, sandy lakesides.

This collection is my way of sharing these cherished moments with you, inviting you to experience the tranquility and beauty of Muskoka through my eyes.

Custom framing available upon request.

How did I miss this hidden gem?  I've lived in Muskoka for years, and finally made it out to Hardy Lake Provincial Park last summer.  We walked the trail to this gem of an island and captured such stunning photos just as the sun was beginning to set through the trees.

When I was back in my studio, I just knew I had to paint this iconic Muskoka island!

A waterfall painting

Muskoka, Canada, is brimming with breathtaking spots just waiting to be discovered! My two sons and I cherished our little adventures down the trail to the beach by High Falls in Bracebridge, turning it into our own treasure hunt for wood pieces to craft with. We fondly called it "Treasure Beach," and the stunning view of the falls always made the hike worthwhile. I've collected countless fond memories and just as many photos on my phone from our times there. It's inevitable that one of these cherished moments would find its way into a painting.

This large 48"Wx30"H landscape painting is just the right size for over the sofa or bed, and perfect for reminiscing about your favourite moments in nature!
