Artist Statement

Since childhood I have tried to capture and hold the ephemeral essences, scents, colours, and textures of the flowers about me, with drawings and paintings.I love flowers in their abundance, in gardens, in vases, pots and spreads of wildflowers.

As a young mother my time to paint was very spasmodic, so I changed from using oil paints to acrylic paints because of the acrylics much faster drying time. I still work mostly with acrylic paints.
