This figurative series combines colour and line to evoke emotion - through simplicity of form and colour these drawings combine romance with memory, slipping in and out of focus - Using line inspired by the delicacy of Picasso and Matisse, meeting contemporary forms and mediums, and representations of feminine empowerment.
The Folded series documents across mediums, an emotional and cathartic period of personal growth and reconciliation. Through writing, and through a collection of minimalist abstract paintings, this collection becomes both written and visual poetry. Layers of paint, at once expressive, delicate and controlled - are metaphors for grief, healing and growth.
Imaginative and intuitive, this series of puzzle-like imagery plays with simplified forms in bold black ink - influenced by graffiti work, and the smooth classic line drawings of Picasso and Matisse. Collages of forms come together and fall apart, in clean line work that follows one continuous thread, infinitely looping the figures together.
Landscapes For My Mother - This series is both a homage to Canadian painter Lawren Harris, and was greatly inspired by his work - and also by my Mother. These landscapes are from both images, and memories of my Mother's upbringing in Alberta and the Canadian West landscapes.These small landscapes range from 4x6" to 16x20", with the majority done on postcard sized panels. The series became like painted postcard love stories with the Canadian landscape - bringing my Mother closer to the mountains, and bringing the mountains home.
