Poppies in an Open Field

These works examine the evolution experienced by children, when coping with the illness of a grand-parent. With their naturalness, gentleness and courage, children are often able to lend much strength to the surrounding adults. The kids end up playing the unusual role of hero. These paintings use delicate layers of colour and texture, as well as dramatic contrasts in light, to call attention to the encouraging and remarkable growth and power of children bearing witness to disease. What’s more, I hope my works will lend encouragement to those directly experiencing illness. . .

Compelling, lively blooms surprisingly emerge from bleak, cold landscapes to represent the often unanticipated strength that grows in the face of adversity.

These works are a tribute to individuals, whom, when struck with difficulty, give beyond themselves and grow to become unpredictable champions to those around them.
