artists are passionate about either their medium or
their subject matter. With me, it seems to be
the process. I love working in a variety of
disciplines from photo realism paintings to welding
torches and caldrons of bubbling wax.
themes seem to recur in my work whichever medium I
choose. One is Wabi Sabi – an appreciation of
the beauty of things in their naturally
deteriorating state … of the simple, the humble, the
often overlooked. With this in mind I often
incorporate beautiful bits of rusting metal into my
paintings, and stones and old keys or anything else
I find interesting.
theme is Time and the constant struggle between
Chronos, or man’s time and Kairos – God’s time.
Several of my gallery shows have dealt with this
theme. ‘Touched by Time’ at Industrial
Artspace; ‘Summer/Time’ at the Sovereign House and
‘Timeless’ at Beans and Blossoms all contained old
watches and lots of thought.
theme is cats. I have been a contract artist
for Pine Ridge Art Inc, a Canadian company with
international distribution for the past ten years.
What began with my first calendar containing 12
paintings of my own cat T.C., has grown into a full
line of cat-related products featuring paintings of
cats based on photos sent to me from all over the
world. I now have done over 100 paintings of
cats, and still find them fascinating.
constant quest for new and meaningful ways to
express her unique point of view has led her to
experiment with widely divergent techniques and
It is that
quest and the excitement of learning that hopefully
keeps my work fresh and new.
