Artist's Statement:

In my painting I am inspired by textures, shapes and patterns.  I look at the human form and the natural world around me, taking a closer look at the bark of a tree, a shoreline, roots as I imagine them below the ground, the veins of a leaf or an action of  a person.Often I work in layers of pigment. My images are acrylic and watercolor.

This show relates to a series of works about women, sea life and plants. The female personality, as she perceives her life, her being, has always intrigued me and this series paintings both question and explain a part of that female spirit. During a recent sailing trip through lower Canadian coast, I was fascinated by the sea life growing around and in the waters. My sea life paintings reflect this,and how plants grow, textures and shapes are a continuing inspiration for my work.

We choose the medium we work in because it speaks to us, it has something to reveal about who we are. It communicates a personal aesthetic quality, what we value and cherish.

Enjoy the viewing.
