why I make pictures
There are moments in this life when we encounter and are touched by the inexpressible beauty and wonder of the Cosmos.
I paint with the intention to share these moments, and so that my paintings may serve us all as a reminder that with a moments pause, and a second's gratitude, we can instantly renew our connection to the ever unfolding wonderfulness of life and to each other.
Once apon a time I painted all the time.. When I had my first child at 22 I thought I had better sort myself out and get a "real job". So I went to university, had more children, became a lawyer and worked hard feeling increasingly spent, wrung out and disillusioned.
A few years ago I picked up a paint brush and without any expectations started to paint my soul longing and I found that I thirsted for connection with the wilderness, to experience more freedom and to live a life guided by my heart..
