"I paint from life using traditional oil painting techniques and direct observation of the subject. My painting philosophy speaks to my concerns about rampant consumerism and waste destroying our planet and quality of life. My work encourages slowing down to appreciate the beauty of the every day. I meditate on light and colour, objects and places. The simple act of looking mindfully, reconnects us to the world and the things in it."
