My paintings reflect my emotional connection to the Magic and Mystery of nature that surrounds me.
But what is Magic? For me, Magic is the sound of wind, the smell of weather,
the dappling of light, the dance of leaves, even rust on a barrel; nothing conventional, usually imaginary, sensitive, sensual, thought provoking.
To begin with, I work intuitively; playing with combinations of colors and textures until the painting nudges me, and reminds me of a feeling, a place, a poem.
I paint in response to the green mysterious places that I love. I paint from memory and imagination, blending the two abstractly and with emotion. I am a self-taught artist who has been happily creating my whole life. It wasn’t until 2021 that I began to play in earnest. I have been painting almost daily since then.
