"My paintings are still lives. In recent years they have featured bright flowers, water and glass or toys and possessions belonging to my family. They are images that reflect my everyday experiences and interests. The paintings are about relationships with ordinary objects and highlight their appearances and qualities. They are intended to be playful positive statements about the environment that surround me.
"I get pleasure from creating a realist image while exploring the subtle variations in colour, light, value, and textures that create the illusion of depth.
"I like to paint objects that intrigue me. I am fascinated with the transparency of glass and the reflections and the distortions caused by water. The vibrant colours of flowers, the energy in nature and the fun in toys and ordinary 'stuff' have found a place on my canvas. I am often drawn to complex details, and to the fragments of larger images. As a result, while I continue to explore my customary themes, I am also creating paintings derived from accentuating the morsels, pieces, and isolated parts; highlighting the little 'bits'. This can be seen in the series I’m working on of paintings based on 'little bits'.... cropped images of flowers, toys, glass, candy, water, nature....a little bit of everything. I'm enjoying using 'a little bit of....' as an opportunity to explore different subjects."
