Artist Statement

After years of sketching and painting, I have developed a style best described as impressionism with a more abstract format, creating a conversation between colour and texture. Predominantly I work with acrylics, charcoal on stretched canvas and wood art panels.

The subject matter of my work for this series clearly reflects the warm affection for a common male blackbird. I observed, photographed, sketched and appreciated the ritual in his daily survival skills.
