My work is joyful and happy. I hope to evoke a feeling of play and a sense of being on the water in the sunshine. Through the jumble of boats and sails that are always present in my work I try to convey a feeling of summertime fun. Their lines and shapes provide me with infinite possibilities to create my abstract and uplifting compositions.
My personal marks, shapes and bold colours guide my way until a sense of balance is achieved. The delight I get by sailing our boat, Take Five, is transferred onto canvas to be shared with the viewer.
Explosions of colourful energy are also found in my flowers. The chaos in the stems and leaves are so exciting to me that I can get lost in creating their interesting shapes.
