I Leaf You

Mixed media
61 cm x 61 cm

In the dark days of Winter, I found myself daydreaming about the warmth of Summer. Longing for those golden evenings when the sun is setting, and the rays of sunshine are peeking through the leaves. Hence, “I Leaf You” was born. This piece is multiple layers of resin, tinted with metallic pigments, painted using a palette knife and a skewer. I inlayed glass glitter in the second to last layer.
I am a juried member of both, the Federation of Canadian Artists & the Society of Canadian Artists. I found my artistic ‘voice’ in abstraction and my inspiration comes from the natural beauty that surrounds us on our exquisite Vancouver Island.  My expression of that beauty is not literal because Mother Nature has already gifted us with perfection. My expression is more about our quirky relationships with that natural perfection.
