Artist Statement

I am mesmerized by beautiful moments – not just because of the aesthetics, but because it stirs my soul and allows me to experience something beyond myself, something far greater than my own reality. These moments feel like inspired glimpses of truth and they are only found when I pause long enough to take them in. For the last ten years, my paintings have paid tribute to these moments found in our everyday experience; Light dancing on water, a bubble, hovering for a moment in the air or a ray of light breaking through a dense forest of trees. Upon discovery, I have had the distinct pleasure of analysing, pursuing and honouring these moments through a few extensive bodies of work: the ‘bubbly’, ‘mercyscape’ and ‘breakthrough’ series of paintings.

The art represented in this latest exhibit is the product of reflecting upon the learnings that have transpired over this past decade. A display of all that has emerged, in an effort to embrace what is yet to come. Each body of work has allowed me to see the world differently. My hope is that in some way, it will enable you to see things differently too.
