Hello World is what artists say every time they create new work. Hello world, encapsulates that intimate relationship between artist and viewer. I create to communicate. My landscape paintings and fabric work communicate my connection with and reverence for, our natural world. One of my exhibitions of abstract paintings explored the power of simple visual imagery to communicate the experience of music. This is a recent abstract painting created from my experience of listening to a recording of work by the baroque composer Tomaso Albinoni. This is his Oboe Concerto — the Allegro movement. Although several centuries separate us the life and vitality of his music should be evident in my work.
