Title or Location: Lake Bote Ride
Since I love impressionism and expression through color, I got the idea of adding a touch of sentimentalism and love by including the image of a couple on a boat. The atmosphere in the painting needed to be quiet and peaceful. The palate chosen came with greens and ultramarine blue and red of course as the complimentary of green.

Title or Location: In Between Time
My first painting I competed in March of 2024 and after a particularly stressful day at work I decided on a whim to attempt to paint my dog, Alchemy.

Title or Location: Sunset at Boukari Harbour, Corfu
I started painting 6 years ago after attending a paint night at a local bar (just for fun) in Vancouver, Canada, where I had been living. I was addicted! Youtube videos have been a great way to learn and grow. The journey has been frustrating at times but it has also become my stress relieving activity.I visited Corfu at the beginning of June and loved the sunsets at this location in the South East of the Island. When I look at skies, clouds , water etc I am always imagining how to paint them

Title or Location: He sees me.
This was a new experience. I knew I needed to be more efficient at creating. So I prayed and with all my art work being are a form of praise and worship, each time I sat to paint, time disappeared. Yet I finished it quicker than any other piece. Once this was done I asked myselfhow'd you do that? I didn't, He did!

Title or Location:
Part of an unreal series from the land of dead birds exploring human extinction. The Unreal series are inspired by the bleak landscapes of Western Australia. In this instance the Blackwood River in Nannup. A poet friend who doesn't want to be named sends me photos she thinks would form a perfect backdrop for the land of dead birds. The birds themselves are Frankenstein compositions all framed by Art Nouveau/Lovecraftian inspired frames. The land of deadbirds is part of a wider exploration of war
