(posted on 27 Oct 2022)

After a beautiful, warm, sunny summer, Fall has arrived! As I continue to go on walks to the water...rain or shine, wind or light breeze...I am always inspired by nature. Although I currently am focusing on abstract compositions, I bring the energy and joy I experience in nature into my artwork.

My painting ‘The Journey’ was juried into the FCA Victoria Chapter Fall Exhibition ‘Shadow and Light’ at the Fortune Gallery, 537 Fisgard Street in downtown Victoria, November 1–12. The opening reception is Tuesday, November 1st, 6:30-8 pm. If you’re in the area, stop by to enjoy the wonderful array of art. You can also view the exhibition online at https://federationgallery.com during the exhibition dates. The gallery hours are 12-5 pm Tuesday – Sunday, closed on Mondays.

This abstract painting has taken me on a journey of discovery as I worked through the layers, and let the composition evolve. The interplay of light, shadow, shape, and movement come together to express depth and harmony.


Below are some new small pieces I've been working on. Enjoy the warm and vibrant colours! I'll be posting them on my website soon...stay tuned!
