Colour Your World From The Inside Out

Hangeable, Wearable, Inspirational Art

Some of my work is done in series when inspired by particular feelings, circumstances or current events.

moon and dove series

At times I have felt overwhelmed by the darkness and harshness of our world.  I was inspired to create this series because of the lightbringers of the world.  The people who see real beauty, the people who share their gifts and help uplift those who feel the real struggle of being human. This series is dedicated to the artists, healers, and lovers of the world that never give up on spreading their light and love, their kindness and compassion, their hope that we can all be healed and become the best version of ourselves.  The moon symbolizes divine feminin energy, the dove symbolizes peace and the lantern symbolizes the ever presence of our inner light.

These 3 pieces were created using tempera paint, soft pastels and encaustic hot wax medium.

Mini winter scene series

When the virus became widespread, many people became shut-ins. It was especially challenging during the colder winter months when many tended to spend less time outdoors. I created this series to celebrate our beautiful Canadian winters. It was wonderful to see more people getting outdoors, even in winter. We made a skating rink on the Ottawa River behind our house and had hours of fun. Long walks on rural roads and in the forests of the mountain nearby gave us rosy cheeks and fresh optimism. A reminder of how much nature and fresh air can be healing and do us so much good.
