why make pictures?
There are moments in this life when we encounter and are touched by the inexpressible beauty and wonder of the Cosmos.
I make art with the resolve to share these moments, and so that these paintings may serve us as a reminder that in a moments pause we can instantly renew our connection to the ever unfolding wonderfulness of life.
how to paint
I used to paint all the time. I never worried about results, and would often paint with my fingers and toes just for fun. I had my first child at 22 and worried about being too much of dreamer. Thought I had better get it together. So I went to university and studied law, had more children, worked hard and felt increasingly spent, wrung out and disillusioned with our society and collective values.
A few years ago I picked up my brushes, and using water-colour began to paint my soul's longing. I found that I thirsted for connection with the wilderness, for freedom and heart based living... so that is what I painted.
