Art is how I make sense of the world and share experiences and ideas. Drawing is my foundation, painting is my commitment. I am constantly amazed at the power of paint and lines to communicate with people.
I’m working with Ottersburn Gallery to create an online exhibition entitled Root & Branch, beginning at roughly the same time SF would have taken place this year. It will include paintings that are part of an ongoing series about trees as sustainers of life and metaphors for the human condition.
I was awarded a 2020 VACMA grant toward the cost of a new painting/multimedia project called Cabaret, working with performers in the Scottish cabaret scene to explore questions of gender and sexuality. This has been delayed by the quarantine but I aim to start later this summer, though it may have to begin online.
