Title or Location: Everything And Nothing At All
Most of my work revolves around mental health issues (Depression, ADHD) and some sleep-related issues, like sleep paralysis and just plain old nightmares. Sometimes the pieces, like this one, start as stream-of-consciousness explorations of ideas and emotions. This piece started as a sketch for another piece (a graphite one) but for which I ultimately decided to go in a slightly different direction. However, I always wanted to come back to it, and this time I decided to take it up digitall

Title or Location: Resolute Spirit: The Portrait of Harriet Tubman
Born from a realization that many people are unfamiliar with the full extent of Tubman?s legacy, this realistic oil painting aims to shed light on her life and the profound impact she had. Tubman, most celebrated for her role in the Underground Railroad, embodies the very essence of courage and resilience, traits I sought to capture in this portrait.In creating ?Resolute Spirit,? my intention was to offer more than just a visual representation it was to weave the story of Tubman?s bravery a

Title or Location: ?Gratitude?
I am calling gratitude into my life. Time to ?stop and smell the roses.? Time to acknowledge the good before the ?bad?, and to understand that the bad is necessary. Since going to therapy and learning that I?ve been living life in a traumatized body, and that this is not just ?who I am? I?ve been angry. A lot of things done to me were out of my control, as I was a child. I can?t hear loud noises/voices without jumping and experiencing immediate fear. Someone can?t reach out to touch me without

Title or Location: Sunset at Boukari Harbour, Corfu
I started painting 6 years ago after attending a paint night at a local bar (just for fun) in Vancouver, Canada, where I had been living. I was addicted! Youtube videos have been a great way to learn and grow. The journey has been frustrating at times but it has also become my stress relieving activity.I visited Corfu at the beginning of June and loved the sunsets at this location in the South East of the Island. When I look at skies, clouds , water etc I am always imagining how to paint them

Title or Location: He sees me.
This was a new experience. I knew I needed to be more efficient at creating. So I prayed and with all my art work being are a form of praise and worship, each time I sat to paint, time disappeared. Yet I finished it quicker than any other piece. Once this was done I asked myselfhow'd you do that? I didn't, He did!

Inspiration for this was just flipping through some pictures I took of my garden earlier in the season. I wish the peonies bloomed longer! This painting was done using Chinese colors and brushes on black shuen paper.

Title or Location:
Part of an unreal series from the land of dead birds exploring human extinction. The Unreal series are inspired by the bleak landscapes of Western Australia. In this instance the Blackwood River in Nannup. A poet friend who doesn't want to be named sends me photos she thinks would form a perfect backdrop for the land of dead birds. The birds themselves are Frankenstein compositions all framed by Art Nouveau/Lovecraftian inspired frames. The land of deadbirds is part of a wider exploration of war
