For me living on a very small island and painting are so intertwined they could only exist together. Each day the sea, the sky reminds me of the impermanence of living and to paint reminds me to stop and look, to notice the ceaseless changes to life that gives me that fresh outlook when the edges of the island feel too near. Painting is not about the finished product, it is the unfinished strokes that leave us in movement of what is to come next. In looking at birds this collection of paintings express that sense of freedom and expanse that you feel on the islands.
