Across the Road and Around the Corner
My work is concerned with community, seasonality and changes in light as the year progresses. Right now, the flowers and objects I paint reflect my life in my regional community. Since moving from the city, we have worked to improve and expand our garden, providing many opportunities to connect with neighbours and friends as we share produce, conversation and community. Some cuttings are taken from our garden, others from obliging roadside trees or collected during a sanctioned raid on a friend’s garden. All are foraged in some way and ultimately gathered and brought back to my home for arranging and painting.
