My approach to life, and therefore my art, pays respect to the earth and the magnificence of nature.
I live in Homedale in Brantford were daily walks along our local trails provide an abundance of inspiration. I use materials in that are often repurposed and reclaimed; exploring embracing new ways of expression through the variety, which each comes with strengths and limitations and promotes a learning process. My mediums include mixed media paintings, printmaking and ceramics.
I have become obsessed with trees and wildflowers, birds and small animals. People know that I dote on foxes. I feel that they deserve a place of honour in portrait – as a tribute to all that Mother Nature gives us – and in compensation for humanity’s ungratefulness for her gifts.
