Prior to moving to Bonaire, I found many of my compositions involved the deep shadows and full sun captured around windows. I often painted light and reflections in glass and tried to capture the luminous sunlight shining through flowers and leaves. Moving to Bonaire, opened up a whole new world of nature year round.
find I the vibrant colors and dramatic creatures of Bonaire to be inspirational. The brilliant Caribbean light bounces off the intense Bonaire colors – mustard yellow houses, neon green iguanas, turquoise water, coral pink flamingos, the incredible purples of the salt pans against the white mountains of salt. Bonaire is a truly rich visual experience. I hope my paintings reflect some of that intensity.
