Sensuality, the reflection of the body, soul, heart, and spirit are the central themes in my work. I employ a variety
of media to create texture, rich layers of colour, and illusionist depth. The symbolic imagery in my work reflects the
two halves of the body, the warm energy of the heart, and the creature comforts of the soul. Stairways and doorways
convey the human struggle to find our path while the temples and windows suggest the transcendent qualities of the
spirit. Abstracted landscapes and cityscapes illustrate the environment that surrounds us.
My explorations in art began with collage, drawing, and sewing and led to painting and mixed media. At the Emily
Carr Institute I studied video, vocal performance and sound installation and completed my degree in Media Arts.
Multi-media art ignited my curiosity in the sensory and the phenomenological response influencing my two-dimen-
sional work to take on greater depth. I now combine the mediums of acrylic paint, oil paint, and oil pastel to show
emotion, texture and meaning.
