Tableau - a still scene, or picture, that tells a story
I grew up making images - drawing, painting, printmaking. And I have always loved stories.
I have created these images to tell simple stories about elemental aspects of life: finding joy in transitory beauty, peace in nature, the pleasures of relationships. Companion animals as well as wild ones are the characters that explore these themes.
I love the design aesthetics of both the Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts movements and of Japanese block prints. I am also influenced by the local landscape and by natural events - the winter of the Great Gray Owl irruption for example - and find ways of incorporating these natural occurrences to tell small stories of life's chances and wonders and mysteries.
