ARTIST STATEMENT

About the Art

My abstract works are a process of exploration. They celebrate my admiration for the unpredictable and inexhaustible record of life.

I am quickly directed by the work, answering the needs and discovering solutions. I work with thick and thin layers to create a tactile quality. Layers of vibrant colours dynamically emerge and recede within the substrate. The process is reactive, intuitive and playful.

I work from my home Studio on Vancouver Island continually exploring the potentials of self-expression.
