Artist statement

Through my art, I create images that say visually what I feel about where I’ve lived and what I’ve learned from life. Nature has been a great teacher through the cycles of life, death and transition.

I layer colours, play with space and shape, and contrast the solid with the translucent to replicate the layered nature of our experiences, our connections to where we have been and those who’ve come before us.

Symbols, icons and motifs such as the meandering line or the hatch mark are often occur my works. My interest resonates with journeying through the landscape (travels), marking time and recoring life’s experiences (reflections). My morning walks with Lulu (our dog) on our farm are a constant in my day and have become a part of my practice —being in and observing nature and my own emotional responses.
