About my journey

I believe that Art can be found in everything and anything one chooses.  I see art in the clouds.  In the cracks of a sidewalk.  In the sound of wind whistling through trees.  Art affects the senses:  what we see and touch may elicit a smell, a sound or even a taste.  Because these senses are unique for everyone, the art  experience is different for everyone. 

When I create I get the greatest joy and satisfaction when  the work evokes my senses.   I let the images develop organically - when I begin a new piece I have an idea in my head but the result is often radically different when I finish.   To that end, I use media and colour in unconventional ways.  Juxtaposing contrasting mediums, glazing and layering unrelated colours, all meant to evoke emotions in the finished product.  I allow the creative journey to take over,  much like nature, when left to its own space, reclaims what humans have put in place.  In my pieces, you'll see these layers if you look closely.   Many of my pieces are textural - I encourage touching.  And finally, I lean toward the natural world,  because for me, nature in its myriad manifestations, brings out my emotions.   

I hope you enjoy what you see.

"How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank! Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music creep in our ears: soft stillness and the night Become the touches of sweet harmony."
