While the official project is over, I continue to paint storms based on photos taken by myself and other storm chaser photographers.
All my storm originals plus canvas & paper prints are available for purchase in the Store section of my main website EarthSkyArt.ca
Some images from the September 2018 project opening.
My work is inspired by the landscape, sky, water and ice of a place, and especially of my home, Alberta. In the fall of 2016, I attended ChaserConCanada, a weekend convention of storm chasers and photographers from across Canada. The photographs and video of severe weather over this weekend was a revelation to me. I realized my style could be refined to reflect actual weather formations, while still being true to my current explorations of abstract land and skyscapes. I also realized these storm chaser photographers are artists in their own right, creating stunning images of clouds, lightning and sometimes, tornadoes. Each chaser I’ve spoken with has said to me, “You must go on a chase to experience the true impact and raw power of a storm. It will change the way you look at the sky.”
Turbulent Skies is a collaborative art and photography project with 6 well known Alberta and Saskatchewan storm chasers. Bios for all participants are available from the menu above.
