What I see becomes a sort of visual illumination, like a match struck unexpectedly in the dark, a gift, lighting my path into wonder -Virginia Woolf

New Work with thanks to Region of Waterloo Arts Fund

  • It is time to celebrate and share work from this past fall and winter, made with the support of the Region of Waterloo Arts Fund.
  • Colours have fascinated me all my life.  In these works I used colour in a non-objective way, searching for “inwardness”. This way of working has helped me develop mindfulness – I am also beginning to understand self care.
  • During this time the unknowable in these images frightened me. I often felt lost in their presence, anxious: what are they saying?
  • Now this project is coming to an end. Curating the documentation of this work has helped me find some meaning in the journey. There is gratitude, and peace that feels earned.

I appreciate the support from the Region Waterloo Arts Fund.
