Artist Statement

When I work with the vibrancy of nature I am reminded of its grounding energy. It is easy to find peace when in the presence of earths brilliance, neither in the past or future, but fully mindful of the beauty that surrounds in any given moment. I attempt to capture the magnificence of Mother Nature.  When I create I am filled with a sense of elation. The paintbrush dances. The mark making is intense and quick. I’m in the moment experiencing the movement of colour, feeling and texture.
