"Plein air is all about the light effect, the sense of immediacy, the adrenaline rush from being outside"
My painting is a journey and a journal of my life. As a young farm girl I recall being as enraptured by clouds and landscapes as I am today. It was always a childhood dream to live near the sea and I have been blessed to have spent half my life enjoying this dream. I strive to capture moments of light or events (simple or historic) and hope to convey the essence of the power and joy I feel being part of nature. I am constantly striving to say what I see in as few brushstrokes as possible. Most of my work is alla-prima and en plein air or from my own sketches drawn from life.
