Out of the kitchen

The kitchen theme came about as a result of my move to France. Growing vegetables in the garden and incorporating them into traditional french recipes, and the rich seasonal abundance of fruit and the necessity of conserving it, brought me into a wealth of new experiences. It is a subject that has deep traditions, stories, words, and recipes that are woven together through colours, smells and textures, all intended to be shared and celebrated. My kitchen paintings are a visual celebration of my experience of these daily rituals around food.
