“As a respectful & vigilant observer, I continue to be inspired by the intoxicating visual perfumes of nature, harmonies, rhythms of colour and form that surround me.   When I approach every blank canvas, I see it as a beginning of a new relationship with the end result feeling like a child of my imagination.

This past year, my eyes have been drawn to the idyllic quality of the many landscapes on island, those lovely walks, and vistas intrinsic to the island spirit.   In my landscapes, I mostly work from memory, hoping to capture the spirit and love of place.

I have also thoroughly enjoyed exploring the human form, by playing with images of my shadow infused with colour and my garden statues that grace and guard my inner sanctum”.
