flowers as muse

I’m in love with colour and all things beautiful...


A flower represents the very essence of beauty. 

Whether a wild flower dancing in a mountain meadow,

Or a velvety, red rose in a fragrant bouquet...

Flowers lift my spirit and make my heart sing!


A flower has it’s own unique character and personality,

And this is what I paint. 

It is very much like painting a figure... 

Perhaps a solitary soul bursting forth in radiant colour,

Or three sisters dancing...

There is a story in each painting.

With colour and shape the characters are created on canvas,

And the painting takes on a life of it’s own.


These were my thoughts when I asked myself ~ Why do I paint flowers? 

I'm so happy to be a part of the upcoming exhibition ~ Bold and Beautiful at Cityscape Gallery in North Vancouver. 

What is more beautiful than a flower?...
