Through sensuous forms of abstraction and realism, I seek to re-interpret traditional landscapes into other worldly spaces by embracing intuitive gestural mark making and linking sweeping brush strokes of color working my hands, brushes, pencils, sticks and sand paper into the surface of smooth and textured canvas and paper. The concept of connection is further explored as my eyes wander and wonder about science, philosophy, religion, wisdom literature and mythology in relation to equality, identity, cultural diversity and biodiversity in my paintings, drawings and mixed media artwork.
