Vancouver, British Columbia
I paint from the inside out–– moving between an intuitive, emotional response to the materials, followed by thoughtful shaping of what emerges. I love texture and scrape, sand and scratch into the piece.
My art is infused with the natural world. Although I don't set out to paint landscapes, nature seeps in. I'm a gardener, hiker, a lover of trees and all things growing wild. That experience informs my art.
Looking at my paintings, your eye will glimpse what lies beneath––excavated layers hinting of mysteries. The elusiveness of memory and longing. The past bleeding into the present. The raw beauty of joy, grief and hope.
