It is sometime since I’ve written and 'delivered' Musings. I’m delighted to have reason to be back at it.  Kim Pollard recently opened an exquisite art gallery at Hope Bay and, for December, is exhibiting the work of several Pender Island artists. Participating artists and details about the show are displayed on the poster below.

My camera is my constant companion - I love how it frames what we see around us.  In this show my work revolves around elements in nature that we might otherwise overlook, and gives them a “stage” of their own.  I want to draw attention to colours, shapes, and textures - to the incredible details even in the most insignificant and mundane ‘fragments’ of nature.  The image below is among the work of mine that will be shown; professionally printed and framed, it measures 12"x12".
