Our tread so light it’s hardly there
Without us, the earth is bare
In my recent work insects began to appear.
At times they need to be searched for, like a child making discoveries in the garden, sometimes they stand out as the stars of the show, and at others they hide in plain sight!
While painting this series I began to recall the beginnings of the wonder I found in nature as a child, those first discoveries of the small creatures that inhabited the world around me, and also the connectedness of every little thing in nature.
I am excited to share the joy I felt in creating this small exhibition with you all.
During this process I enjoyed using different techniques, and tools such as feathers, brushes, palette knives pouring and spraying to create these works. Several of these paintings are painted on recycled supports.
