Artist’s Statement

The work in this exhibition was produced last winter where my primary focus was on my photogenic cats Dot and Lily. I had many images of them lounging glamorously in their favourite spots throughout the house. The fact that they are mortal enemies is evidenced only by the absence of pictures of them interacting happily together.
I have chosen to intersperse still life and landscape paintings as well. Personally, I like variety. I think it is interesting to see how the brush strokes, colour choices, mood and energy levels interweave the varied subject matter in a way that I hope is pleasing to the viewer.
