Being Present, 2023

Being-Present_feature

This imagined landscape comes out of a need for quietness. As I began to think about the colours, and the kind of landscape that would calm my soul, I could see a darker foreground, resembling my heaviness, meeting up to a land that is blanketed with warm hues. Giving hints that this is a place […]

Sobering Views, 2023

Sobering-Views_feature

When the clouds hinder the sun, the slight nuance of colour from the earth, sky, and water comes together more harmoniously.

While composing this piece, I got a strong sense of the blessing that comes from ‘work’. This building’s purpose is to hold grain […]

Bruce-Peninsula_feature

A fresh palette of clean, yet unusual colours to describe the land and waters surrounding the Bruce Peninsula. This composition was more based on capturing elements randomly of this area, placing them close together to draw out the harmony through delicate line and subtle shades of colours.

When I Was Young , 2023

Lying as flat as possible in a field of grass and wildflowers, I look up to see the vastness of the sky and smell the array of sweet flowers and grass surrounding me. I am so small. I feel lost, but I don’t feel troubled. Then the bugs come, and I am drawn back to […]
