Journey to the Stars, walks us through the land to the sea and up into the sky. While growing up in a small town, travelling across Canada, and enjoying summers on our family farm in the Interlake and cabin at Delta Beach, the stars consistently offered guidance. We spent time camping, hiking, and portaging the land, viewing the sky’s vibrancy along with the chilling cold glacial water as 'lakes were claimed'.
No matter where we stand away from the city lights, the stars are crisp and clear. Their vibrancy against the dark contrast in the sky along with these experiences have been hugely influential in this body of work.
My works are abstract, yet representational and consistent much like the stars that appear in the sky, night after night. The connection to the land we live on and sky we gaze at, is how I chose to express my journey for this exhibition.
From a young age, a journal was kept close by, writing my curiosities, hoping for answers. As I’ve grown into being middle aged, the stars continue to guide me and are consistently there for every decision made. Similarly, I now use art to guide my spirit in the act of creating. As you take in this body of work, allow the stars to guide you through this journey.
