RECENT WORK (painting & prints)

mixed media on canvas
event horizon; mixed media on canvas; 82 x 60cm; 2016
This series of paintings represents a moment in time when the outcome of an event is uncertain. The observer does not know what will happen or whether she or he will be involved in an event that may turn out to be good or bad.
"waiting" mixed media
Waiting: mixed media on paper; 2012
In 2012 my preoccupation was with trying to reconcile picture construction with emotional events. These events were very simple everyday occurrences such as what might occur when a woman awakes, from the moment she opens her eyes to the moment of consciousness.
