Welcome to the BLACK & WHITE COLLECTION. During this challenging time of living through a pandemic, I found my creativity evaporating – it's hard to be inspired during such difficult times. But I created a project for myself: I would create a wall mural consisting of 12 - 16 individual black and white paintings. Each one created as time and mood permitted. I also challenged myself to use only black and white paint to see what I could create using only these 2 colors.
So far, it's fun and interesting…

THE TWISTED SISTERS – There is a small grove in Stanley Park called the Seven Sisters. It was the site of 7 large trees (Douglas Fir and Western Red Cedar) at the turn of the 19th century. All that's left are the 7 large stumps. This is what came to mind when I was naming this piece THE TWISTED SISTERS.

This painting is heavily textured and made for touching which brings an element of surprise and fun to the creation.

We rarely get snow in downtown Vancouver but when we do… it’s an experience not to be missed. My morning walk on the seawall after the snowfall had me walking through soft snow, in utter silence… I felt serene and thankful to be able to soak up the beauty all around me. I took a photo so I could paint it when I got home…

This work was created by me in my TOUCH THE ART TODAY! studio. My art is textured and made for touching which brings an element of surprise and fun to the creation. This work has a mix of light to heavy textures. At different points in our creative processes, artists will become enamoured with particular items and enjoy painting any number of versions of them. I’ve had a love on for trees for some time now. The stylized trees I create always make me think of women…. Resilient, life-giving, beautiful, strong, necessary, fear-inducing to many who may see trees as a threat and thus, they try to control them – but in the controlling, they destroy what is necessary to their existence. In my heart and mind are politically charged thoughts but on my canvas, these thoughts need to be decoded amidst the beauty of the so-called ‘simplicity’ of trees…

This creates a wonderful visual of being able to look at the canvas and see beyond the surface to another place lying just beyond. The tree has a slender opening in it through which you can see just glimpses of the secret garden that lies beyond…

I often see things when I’m walking that inspire me to create. This was inspired by an old wooden fence with trees on all sides and the ocean beyond. Of course, what I saw looks nothing like what I created and that’s what I love most about my style of creating every piece in one sitting – I let the moment take control and then see what shows up!
