I am intrigued by events that occur in leaves, twigs, snow and ice, as a result of seasonal changes. These images from nature represent for me visual symbols of the continuous changes in all life forms.
My response to the mood of the seasons is expressed in my work through the use of color. Such as color changes in the green leaves of spring and late autumn. The relationship between the image, color and surface quality is particularly important to me.
Nature provides interesting possibilities in terms of artistic expression. There is such variety of textures, patterns and lines to be found in trees and plants. I make use of line in the structuring of my paintings. the quality of those lines can be delicate, powerful or jarring. It depends on the mood being expressed in a particular painting.
