2019   New Paintings

In the summer I painted en plein air not far from my home. The first painting is a view looking south from a picnic area in Pouch Cove.

In this one you see Biscayne Cove which is on the tip of the Avalon Peninsula.

I love the immediacy of working outside in watercolour. It is so fast and captures the moment. Both of these paintings have been accepted into an Member’s Exhibition by the Society of Canadian Artist in Point Claire, Quebec.

2016    On The Edge

In October this is my solo show at Christina Parker Gallery in St John’s, Newfoundland.

The paintings in this collection are about the strategic skills used by plants that are growing in challenging environments. The results of this interaction are often unexpected and fascinating to me. Many times I wonder if my progress in life would have been entirely different if Science had been taught at the girl’s school I attended in Zimbabwe. The excitement generated in observing and becoming educated about the plant kingdom has almost become an obsession. Through this challenge of self education, and the Newfoundland environment around me, I have been exploring the geological effects that change and enhance the accompanying verdure.

Five artists from Toronto came for a two week painting trip. On the first day we went to the look out above Norris Point.
