My paintings

For 35 years I have been searching to know God better through my life and work. I believe God is the Creator of the Universe and my work celebrates and explores this fact.
I am always seeking my purpose in the rich, disturbing, unsettling biodiversity of life. Creation speaks to me of its Creator and the act of creating speaks to me of God's nature. I seek to deepen my relationship with him on a daily basis and painting facilitates the on-going discovery.

Colour, pattern and story are the aspects of painting that have always interested me. I live in the french countryside, in a vast, flat landscape which enables me to see and be inspired by the changing colours and patterns of nature. I find deep satisfaction in repeated patterns and feed my imagination looking at trees, plants and earth. I am blessed by the countryside around me but I am conscious of the insatiable, abusive demands humanity makes on it.

Hope and suffering, life and death, are often themes woven into my work. I often come back to the idea of the smallest thing in a vast universal plan. I am reassured that each thing has its place in the Creator's plan. Everything has its unique beauty and is created to be interdependent on everything/something else. Nothing is perfect alone. Everything needs to be in relationship with the other, appreciated, useful in their existence. Beauty is a useful. Biodiversity is a place of cooperation, of coexistence where there is a place for everything/everyone.

The source of a large part of my inspiration is also the Bible. In my eyes this book is a story of a people and their relationship with the Creator. It follows their failures and successes, and tells of God's patient love and generosity. It tells of a perfect God who offers a solution. I consider my own story to be a continuation of the same story. A process of continual reconciliation and restoration between people and God, between people and people, between the creation and humanity, between creation and God. Jesus is the solution.
