The more I paint the more I love it. In between freelance graphic design jobs and family duties, I aim to complete one painting a week, more or less. I also enjoy teaching, filling up sketchbooks, gardening, permaculture, photography, and general diy.
There’s a book about the artist Robert Irwin called “Seeing is Forgetting The Name of the Thing One Sees”. My work is nothing like his, in appearance or stature. Still, I hang onto that phrase when I’m painting — looking at something carefully and long, losing myself in it, and finding a new sense of awareness and wonder in a carrot or a leaf, or whatever it is.
Thanks for stopping by!
