There is something magical about the light shining through forest trees, creating patterns on the ground below. I am drawn to twisting and intertwining tree branches and the cozy or daunting depths that tree-lined paths create. Experimenting with light, shadow, and organic form, I paint the colours of the changing seasons inspired by walks I take in nature.
De Haan Series
The De Haan Series is where it all began. In the Spring and Summer of 2020, I was staying in this coastal Belgian town and was taking daily walks along the beach and through the dune forests. I began making a series of small acrylic paintings depicted what I saw on my daily walking route. I wanted to capture the seasonal changes I was noticing through colour and light.
A collection of small 5 x 7 inch (12.7 x 17.8 cm) pieces available on my Etsy shop. These original artworks come matted making for a total size of 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm).
