I like the immediacy of what is organic and the creative spontaneity in the painterly process of making monotypes. The style and mood of my work comes from personal experience, emotional expression and life caught in the moment. I collect what I connect with intuitively. It could be dried pods found on the ground, wild thistles, exotic plants and fruits from the marketplace, and plants I cultivate, study and dissect from my own garden. I tuck wild-looking flowers into heirloom vases as strange containments. I show plants reaching for the light or nipped by the light or exposed by light that dramatizes their energy for example, with root images. I get very absorbed by it all. Whatever stage of life I am observing and drawing, it is ultimately me who is drawn into the organic world.
