Creating art grounds the restlessness in me and it helps me to reflect upon the passage of time, my relationships with people, animals and nature. Working predominantly in acrylics on canvas, I find the immediacy and flexibility of acrylics a pleasure to work with. Typically for landscapes, I paint from memory and reference personal photos. The addition of textiles and sewing adds a tactile quality to my works that is very captivating to me. Vacillating between representation and abstraction, my work strives to capture the essence and vitality of my subject matter.
