I bought myself flowers. To liven up our home and to add color. I also intend to create a few still life’s of the arrangement (still do) but when I sat with them this weekend I saw deeper worlds of color, line, curve, petal and stem. This piece is an introduction to the small world within my flowers. I’ve also been reading a lot of Mary Oliver. Funny how things align isn’t it? Her words inspire and encourage me to look closer at the world around me. To listen to what God’s creation is saying. I find it’s saying a lot of simple and wonder-filled things. I’m working on paying attention. Painting and observing, questioning and wondering. ”to pay attention, this is our endless and proper work.” Mary Oliver
My work seeks to be a safe place driven by love and grace. It unpacks relationships between humanness and our natural world. I am endlessly inspired and intrigued by other art forms. My work often becomes a visual love letter, poem, a song or a prayer. The creative spirit is not limited to the single material by which it reveals itself. Poetry, painting, music and prayer are beautifully connected. My work fuses these vessels of human expression together. Saturated with faith, my work is listening to the music and poetry surrounding it. It reveals this underlying truth and gentle understanding that we are not alone.
Where I grew up has a particularly rich impact on the subject matter of my representational paintings. The lifestyle in my hometown is slower, the landscape seems to set still both time and people. In a day and age that feels like we are rushing through our days and forgetting to be present, I want to remind us of a place where “rush” doesn’t exist – there is only the fields, the farm, and the creeks. This idea of paying attention to small still moments carries into my abstract practice as well. When I’m painting, i’m listening. How are the colors interacting? what are they saying and why?
Whether sage is talking to mustard or a green leaf with an endless sky, this work is about paying attention.
