Its all about the connection through the brush to the paper, and the transmittal of energy and vitality. With nature as a muse, a painting begins with a feeling. A balanced compositional structure emerges in dynamic interplay within and between shapes, lines, color and brushstrokes. It’s a meditative dance, engaging all of my senses visually.
I love gardens, color, special natural places and connecting with paper through a brush. There is intimate immediacy, much like a deep conversation.
