Using complementary colour and sweeping line helps to create the storms and winter seasons that interject in our daily lives. Losing my mother at a young age left me with contrasting emotions of the deep love and loss. My parents had left me with a love of sailing. Being around and on the water fascinates me with wonder and respect for weather, especially in its most powerful moods. Influenced by Homer Watson, I seek to capture the joy and love of life amongst the storms of love and loss.
