My work reflects my love of the natural environment and the importance of finding the stillness in life. When I meditate I am able to connect to the beauty of creation, and gain greater awareness of the patterns and cycles of the universe. In my work I try to express this awareness. Through change, growth occurs, and so I don’t limit my subject matter. We are all on a journey of discovery. I’m taking mine through art. I enjoy painting landscapes, still life, figures, and abstracts, using watercolour, acrylics and oils, and often include mixed media in my work.
