Jeremy paints local Nova Scotian landscapes, seascapes, islands, beaches and waves. He works primarily in acrylic on canvas. He has been visiting Lakes, islands, and rivers, kayaking and hiking for years, finding inspiration at its source, taking thousands of photographs to work from. He often revisits favourite wild places, (now with his daughter Holly, and dog Lola) in fog, in rain, sunshine and winter. Jeremy loves how different weather and tidal conditions, bring different moods and design elements to the same much loved places. Growing up in Middle Musquodoboit, he was drawn to the outdoors from childhood, fishing in rivers and streams, exploring the woods, learning from two artistic, wonderful parents. Recent experiences while swimming and kayaking have drawn his artistic attention to the wonder of water. While swimming dozens of times with his daughter one summer, Jeremy had what he describes as a water epiphany. The beauty of moving water, the grace of its forms, the way it directs light and colour, and the soothing feel of it while swimming all gave such tremendous comfort and joy. he came to think of water as a living entity and is trying to soak in, through gratitude and appreciation, a deeper understanding of water through art and in his life. In many of his recent paintings photos have been taken from as far out in the water as he can get, while holding a camera over his head, or from the perspective of a kayak. he hopes some of his appreciation and growing love of wild places and water come through in his work. Jeremy is also committed to working with organizations that actively protect wild urban spaces, and protect coastal regions to future parks.
