Artist Statement: I work primarily in watercolours finding my subject matter in nature. I love colour but texture and line are also strong components of any piece I create. I consider my work to be impressionistic in style, as I am more concerned with the impact than the details. My work has become more abstract in the past years as it gives me more opportunities to express my emotions and inner life. However, the work still contains representational elements that I hope engage the viewer.

I am concerned about the impact of climate change on the natural world that sustains and is connected to us in so many ways. I feel that the natural world is becoming frustrated and angry at our continuing indifference and adherence to our destructive habits. Mother Nature is not happy…..
