Today the world is being dramatically impacted, with our environment under life-threatening attack. The paintings I create in my studio are my way of giving voice to these environmental and social issues, the heartbeat of the planet we call home.
My travels in northern parts of the globe and my strong spiritual connection to trees, water, rocks and sky have largely informed the subject of my artwork. I paint the wonders of snow, forest and waterfalls, of blooming fields of wildflowers and the magic of the setting sun. I paint in bright colours because I want the observer of my artwork to feel the energy in the paint. My paintings can be joyful, celebratory, a tool of warning, hopefully awe- inspiring. Watercolour and acrylic paint my most common chosen mediums and I experiment with paper, wood and textile.
I experiment with new ideas and techniques - while I primarily paint with watercolours and acrylics, I also incorporate wood, plant material, metal, and more into my pieces. The galleries on this website are arranged by medium and subject. Unless specified, all work is for sale - please enquire for details.
