“My art is reflective of my connection and admiration of nature. I find it very inspiring to study the landscape from the largest mountain to the smallest rock and everything in between. The more aware I am of my surroundings the more I am able to bring to a painting.
Each painting is created using fragments of my observations with a mixture of emotion, thoughts, ideas and heart. From start to finish every detail, form, color, line and edge has been considered and contemplated over.
My creative process combines different acrylic materials. To create texture, I apply gesso and modelling paste (containing marble dust) to the canvas. Depending on the look I want to achieve it may be one layer of texture or many. I use a variety of tools or ‘tool like’ objects to apply the materials. Once the texture is dry, I sand the canvas and apply thick or thin paint. This process can create more texture or enhance what is already present.
Each painting is offering my distinctive point of view and an invitation to the observer to make a connection to the painting.”
