Nothing gives me greater pleasure than being in my studio after a great hike.
It’s not that I want to recreate exactly what I have seen.
By conjuring up the atmosphere and the depth of the multiple layers of colour and light, my work stirs a certain familiarity and a connection.
I began painting with a water colour set given to me when I was five years old. Since then I have dabbled in a multitude of media including stained glass, clay hand building, pencil sketches, oil and presently acrylic painting. My style ranges wildly from abstract to impressionistic to straight from the heart.
The subject matter will be a study of either ravens, landscapes, water and watersheds, wildlife and flowers, and abstracts or realistic interpretations.
Preserving our natural world and staying connected to it, is everything to me.
