artist statement

Nature has been a major theme in my art. Having spent a part of my childhood in Japan, I have been influenced by the reverence the Japanese have for nature. My home since 1968 has been beautiful Nova Scotia when my husband and I immigrated from the USA.

When I paint a landscape there is often evidence of people or dwellings as subject matter. I see us as a part of nature even though we continue to exploit and pollute the earth. The vision I have for humanity is that of keepers of the earth, living in harmony with nature.

Another theme in my paintings is the fragile beauty found in a small patch of earth, which we too often take for granted. By painting these natural patches or wild flowers I celebrate their existence and hope to call attention to them as something worthy to treasure.

    Wondering if you have any new works available? I bought a piece of yours from AGNS 3 years ago – “Rock and Seaweed” and just love it.
