I would call my art lyrical. I am interested in nature’s varied forms, patterns, textures, the rhythmic flow of colour and tones. On location I take photographs and notes rather for tuning then for reference, then work indoors on canvas, board or paper. I use watercolour., acrylic paint and ink, crayons, pigments; draw with pencil or pen and brush. It is a spiritual gift if and when a true work of art grows into a balanced whole in the current of love through the heart like a seed that I plant with my first tentative marks with pen, pencil or brush on a blank sheet or canvas.
