Additional Information

"A collection of beautifully bound old books behind wavy glass doors provides a backdrop for a plant portrait: a vivid orange geranium at its best in winter when it's brought in from the greenhouse.

These paintings are inspired by my greenhouse and garden, primarily, and celebrate the palette I see in the plant world accentuated by each season. I literally divide my time between the studio and the adjoining greenhouse and garden—both provide a needed refuge. I will take a plant cutting to the easel and paint/study it. I celebrate patterns in leaves, petals, textiles and happily disappear into the process!

I find the use of vintage frames adds a collage element. So often a painting is a simplification of ideas. For me it is a process of editing and as such requires an initial complexity of color and detail which is painted over or refined. I seem to never tire of the simple forms of flower pots and vases and the elegance of leaves: green has always been the anchor."

Vintage wood frames collected for their unique beauty are chosen by the artist specifically for each new painting.
