RECENT PAINTINGS

A tangle of blooms, a snippet of blue sky, a shard of strong sunlight or the brief relationship between a favourite mug and a collection of fresh garden pickings.

 

Botanical nature is the language I use most but as a metaphor for the passing of time.  I am interested in capturing those moments of peace when we feel connected with the things around us and  pause to appreciate them.

Inspired by sunshine and stolen moments - particularly on travels and days away - I play with colour, composition, media and marks to spark a recall of sensation such as joy, contemplation or melancholy.  The aim is to find the comfort  of warm memories and make the heart sing a little.
