These new works come from my roots. In my last years as an art student I painted abstractly, breaking down representational imagery to simple shapes, lines and colour. To begin I create chaos with my materials, draw what I am inspired by and then start to eliminate, keeping the details or stories that I are most intriguing and work as a whole.   As always, I am inspired by the landscape, my flower garden and Saskatoon’s best kept secret Boffin Gardens.   I am pleased to be working abstractly again, it makes me feel at peace, and like this is what I am meant to be doing.  I am excited to see what will come next.
