Visitor Info

Oyster, Orchid is the title that represents my collective body of work coming out of my years of practice at Emily Carr; both Oyster and Orchid are smooth yet sharp, twisting and lustrous, naturally occurring. Through painting, I seek to investigate the ways in which figurative and abstract images may create, space, light, shape, and colour; utilizing reoccurring gestures and forms, jagged marks and creeping lines alluding to flora and fauna; as well as particular motifs, such as fabric, feminine presence, dogs, eggs, shoes, candles and moons. I strive to create an ambiguous setting or instance to which viewers may project their own meaning or mood.
