I have always been drawn to the interplay of colour, light, and shadows; especially how colour evokes emotion, energy and movement. I draw inspiration from the occurrences we experience in everyday life. Children sledding down a hill in winter, portraits of loved ones, the intricate reflections and patterns in nature, and still life floral arrangements displayed and positioned to create original perspectives. Every painting I produce allows me to communicate my story and the lives of the people that surround me. I invite the audience to observe the aspects of these scenes and to identify with stories being told amongst the brushstrokes.
