Celebrating Light & Colour

                              

 

 " Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time " Thomas Merton                   

 

 I have enjoyed and worked at my craft, with varying degrees of intensity, all of my life. Devoting increased time to paint and study kindles my growth and love of art.

Compositions of simple design, interesting light with emphasis on colour and tone provides the subject matter. The process of creating a moment in time is worth the effort and provides a wonderful and exhilarating experience. The study and the mixing of colours is the thrill that brings the work to life. I work with acrylics on canvas as well as acrylics on birch panel. For me the enjoyment in art is the excitement and anticipation of each new piece.
