As a painter I explore large scale expressionism. My portraits and figure work represent political views of the female position within family, community and nation, and nature as spirit and icon. I am motivated by the energy and beauty I observe in all bodies, human or animal and how they translate as communicative elements in art.
The subject becomes more than just an object in art. The subject becomes the relationship I have with it, the energy which is exchanged between us. My perception of the subject and all it means to me, that is what I aim to express.
I am a professional Artist working full time as an Artist, Arts Administrator and Parent in Dartmouth. I am driven by emotion, aesthetic, spirituality, anthropology, and theosophy. I am about to have an exhibit of new work at the Gallery Nineteen Nineteen on 6025 Stanley Street in Halifax (Dean's Flowers Building).
