There is joy in creation. I respond to what I see, feel, and want to share.

Most often, my work focuses on nature, which, to me, always has a component of magic, an almost supernatural coming together in ways that surprise and amaze me, bringing colours, lines, shapes and light to life in my imagination. I see the intricacy of petals and delicate pollen, the power of trees and the energy in the clouds, and am driven to render the beauty of what I see and how I see it.

Like artists of the past, I use a variety of materials and processes in each piece. There is room for watercolours, acrylics, pastels and crayons, inks and stains, sometimes combined and sometimes in their pure form. The subject matter inspires my choices. My processes include play and experimentation, each time allowing space for magic to insert itself and providing opportunities for me to learn and to reveal. I respond to what I see and what I want to share.
