acrylic on canvas
“And whats left are the Pieces of a woman” is a piece very dear to my heart….It was done shortly before my best friend passed away, I was experiencing many health issues to include chronic pain, and my sister’s MS had progressed tremendously while she was taking care of her terminally ill husband, the painting is a combination of all these things, my “self” expression, and my visual interpretation of theirs…and man does this painting have lots of tears in the paint..i “truly” felt extremely emotional doing this one…

Sumatran Tiger made in LA Zoo
The Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) is a subspecies of tiger found on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Recent genetic testing has revealed the presence of unique genetic markers, which isolate Sumatran tigers from all mainland subspecies. Currently, there are only 100-400 Sumatran tigers left in the wild.

W&N transparent watercolor and pen & ink on 300lb Arches Cold Press paper
This image came about after a relocation, and thus represents the breakage of the ‘fabric of life’ due to geographic/social changes. But it is just as relevant for any other breakups, conflicting commitments, reality vs dreams conflicts etc.

Pastel on ‘Colourfix’ sanded surface burgundy coloured pastel paper
This is a portrait of my grandson, Thomas, who is three years old. I did the painting as a birthday gift for my daughter in law. When ever he visits he wants to ‘play’ the piano, and on this particular day the light was coming through the window perfectly highlighting his features. I used Art Spectrum, Unison, Rembrandt and Schminke soft pastels.

Mixed Media on Heavy Duty Canvas
While attending a California Central Coast Mexican Festival, these beautiful horses along with their traditionally costumed Charro Riders inspired me as they were on the sidelines waiting to join the procession.
I wanted to create a special work of this scene I had in my mind, it needed something unique, larger than life…so I built the frame, got heavy duty canvas, stretched and treated it on the frame and added lots of texture in 3 sessions with sawdust and binding materials of my own creation. The end result surpassed my expectations…

Pen and Pencils on Bristol vellum
This is a self portrait conveying my self-destructive 2009, following my loss of an 18-year gig with a major musical instrument manufacturer/distributor. I am a musician/composer and artist, and through the losses and frustrations of last year, which resulted in my almost drowning myself in Jack Daniels and other assorted libations, I began to draw, paint and create new music…funny how things work out…I hit bottom in late December ‘09 and made the decision to change my life. I am 100 days clean and sober tomorrow, and have never felt better. Today was a great day, and I can’t freaking wait until tomorrow!!! Peace!

Watercolours on 140lb/ 300gsm Langton Rough watercolour paper.
The themes of structure, tone, light and shadow are constant guides to how I am looking at the environment. In recent times Natural Lines and Man-made Lines seem to be a focus of my work. The rocks are based on frequent visits to Down Tor in the Dartmoor National Park UK.

oils on stretched canvas
The above started from a face I painted roughly a month ago. For better or worse I generally use oil paint straight from the tube- hence it was dry. I had used a substantial amount of paint in certain areas- something I have come to favor as when dried allows me to “chip away” so to speak and create texture in certain areas. Painting faces has become a unique experience as they develop a will of their own and after many transformations the above ultimately became a combination of wills- the face and that of my own- sometimes in collaboration and sometimes at odds (more often than not- at odds). So after a considerable amount of paint thinner, working, re-working, scraping, and numerous repetitions of this process a result was achieved that both could live with.

Acrylic on canvas
“Removed” is the 2nd of two paintings, the first being Unzippering, where the heart is carefully hidden behind a clock, peeking out thru an unzippered soul. In this 2nd piece she has bravely and without restrictions of any sort, removed her heart and is now holding it up for the world to see, without any care of it being exposed, not hiding her heart behind anything, realizing that after all, how much more can be done to her heart at this point anyway?

Sanguine, Charcoal and Pastel on Arches Not Paper
Here at least were intelligible facts regarding landscape—far-reaching proofs productive of genuine satisfaction.
As with all the others in this series, I paint inspired by the feelings I experience when reading Hardy’s books…I want to paint emotion and mood, not to imitate what I have seen or read…when the painting is complete, I reread the passages, and much to my surprise I find that the memory is deep seated…

Acrylic on 140 Lb Watercolour Paper
Many of my paintings, especially the abstracts, come to me, as this one did, in dreams and visions. Sometimes just sitting at my drawing table without a clue as to what I am going to paint, a vision appears to me in my mind; sometimes it comes when I am asleep and it is so real; so strong, it’s energy wakes me and I have to get it down on paper, even if its a rough draft, in order to go back to sleep. And if I can’t get back to sleep…well then, I work on the painting until it’s done!

Photography – macro
Abstract photograph of rust and scratches on a metal industrial container. Captured in Toronto’s west end behind a factory. I actually got caught by security taking this image and when I explained to the two gentlemen that came out to talk to me I was an abstract artist…. they allowed me to stay and I continued taking my images. I think it pays to be a mature woman somedays! hehe
