To me, making art is about magic. It’s about alchemy, science, philosophy, love and life.
I feel elated and moved when I go into a rainforest or botanical gardens. My art work reflects my emotions in the moment I’m creating and if I feel happy, I paint in vibrant colours.
We asked some artist friends to share works that radiate color and texture. Click on each artist’s name to visit their website.
Artsy Shark invited some artist friends to share landscapes in their own signature styles.
“Inner Painting,” (intuitive painting) forms the basis of my style. My goal in all my paintings is expression of my deepest feelings, not only about the subject matter, but my love of brilliant color and movement that mirrors my joy of living!
I paint hope. Hope that regardless of life’s circumstances, there is a greater picture. All our moments, woven together, create something beautiful.
As for my intention for the viewer, I wish for them to be drawn into my artwork long enough to forget their troubles and worries, and for a moment of peace and or thoughtful reflection, in this hectic and crazy world we live in.

Another goal is to deliver a sensory jolt to viewers of my artwork. I use colors intended to uplift the mood and enliven the atmosphere of a space.
Over the last year, I’ve been delighted to discover the places where my art comes from; a world of starlight and flowers and feathers, a world where people and animals form mysterious partnerships and almost everyone and everything has wings and can fly.
Based on hundreds of photos I have taken over the years, I create textile artworks that depict the beauty and textural interest that time and Nature add to our hard surfaced creations and discarded objects.
I also find it interesting that the reflective glow created by the cool, hard nature of the metal also helps express the warmth so important to me; qualities I initially thought would come only from the imagery itself.
My current body of work is a more inwardly focused contemplation. Images derived from dreams and memories are layered together to create poetic narratives of personal histories.
