I work in series, in an on-going investigation of the connection between the body and emotional memories. My childhood was spent in the woods and the water, and a lifetime of big city living has never changed that connection to the ground and the natural world. My increasing focus is on the structure and geometry of forms in nature.
Working across painting, drawing and printing, the studio is filling with nature and abundance, painting buds and seeds found in my daily walks, and painting many flowers and trees that are disappearing from our ecology. They are portraits, standing as part of an overarching project called ‘When I Walk,’ each component ‘found’ in some form, and marking the commemoration of passing time.
Studio visits and collaborations have been a vital part of my art practice, and the dynamism creates new pathways to understand both craft and content.
