About This Work
“The painting ‘Hopping’ came into my head for a few reasons. Firstly, I’ve been working on paintings recently that address human/wildlife relationships and more specifically, us adapting to their world. Hence the pogo stick. Secondly, the painting represents all the rabbits hopping around my backyard!”

She draws her inspirations from her experiences camping across Canada as well as many parts of Australia and the United States.

"I like to play around with gesture, expression and movement, along with colour, light and texture, to evoke emotion. I’m simply painting colourful stories.”
