“When I paint, I am capturing a mood, atmosphere and a special memory. I enjoy connecting with people through my paintings and enjoy hearing how my work can stir their emotions. That is such a reward for me when that happens. Bringing someone to a special place through my art is a bonus and sharing the beauty of our natural world.”
"It is the colours and fragrance that make me feel alive and I thank my Creator for this beautiful gift."
“I work primarily with acrylics, alcohol ink and mixed media. I love to make large spontaneous marks when I begin most paintings. These loose marks suggest routes that I can take with the work. Since I am a tactile learner it is important for me to add layers of texture to my work, allowing me to feel my way through the piece. This assists me in achieving a sense of depth. I love variety; it is a must in my art practice!
If I can add a little colour, inspiration, and feeling to the world, that makes me happy.
“The subjects of my paintings are diversified and represent the natural world, animals and sometimes everyday objects or scenes painted in my own interpretative and whimsical semi-abstract way. My work reflects happiness, joy and wonderment through design, shapes and colours.”
