Example of Your Work Image

I perceive movement in things that are in fact static, and am compelled to either see or feel texture. Similarly, colour also evokes strong emotions, and can pull me in creative directions and expression.
As a child, I was challenged with vision issues. As a result, I was very tactile when something interested me – I had to touch to understand. This resulted in many talks with Mom about “looking with our eyes, not our hands”, and more than one broken item in my wake. However, it was also a catalyst to a deep appreciation of texture, movement, light and dark – albeit often out of focus, but fascinating none the less. The fascination continues as my artistic practice grows and develops, exploring new techniques and materials, and learning from the rich reservoir of practicing artists in the Georgian Bay region.
