Nature is irrepressible, welling up through a passion for art. The noise and chaos of modern life only makes her voice stronger…
Born in South Africa and now a resident of North Vancouver, it is our natural world that informs my work. From insects to landscapes and wildlife, all are assimilated and portrayed. Details such as individual hairs on an animal or micro veins in a leaf prove that there is no separation. The changing seasons of nature and her fluidity are the wellsprings from which my work flows.
Textures can be played with and solidity and weight added to a landscape. This interest in shape and structure, came from sculpting in various mediums. Experimentation adds an element of fun and variety.
The degree to which the art connects with the wild within us, is my measure of success.
