About this artwork
The dominant motif in my artwork is that of landscapes emanating from childhood memories of hiking Mount Hood with my father in his native Oregon, visiting my mother's relatives in Northern Ireland, exploring Kota Kinabalu in my teens and my current home in the Plenty Ranges.
Mountains have strongly influenced my life as a nomadic child, both my parents were traveling international teachers, and still have a powerful pull over my creative ideals. Both as a meditative retreat and as a sacred space.
My landscape artworks have a meditative quality, deriving from the Sacred Mountain and the symbolic aspect of the peak of a mountain, which is often, in many cultures, believed to be the closest point to heaven or the stars.
Various cultures around the world maintain the importance of mountain worship and sacredness. There is a respect to be accorded to a mountain's sacred power and mountains can be seen as a source of something vital; a blessing, water, life, or healing.
Some mountains are considered home to deities are also central to prayers for the blessings from the gods or forces reputed to dwell in, or on them. Creating a sense of purity in the source of the mountain.
