Artist Statement: "Nature has been my primary source of inspiration for my art throught out my life. I have painted the Ontario landscape from the Georgian Bay region, Killarney, Algonquin Provincial Park and other locations in Ontario where the Group of Seven painted. These are iconic and spectacular places, with windswept pines and dramatic rocks that are emblematic of the Canadian landscape. I also paint wildlife subjects, such as birds, and other animals such as cows and sheep." - Tim Hough
