Vegetable Kingdom

This series of paintings called “Vegetable Kingdom” is an homage to the fantastic array of fruits & vegetable that sustain us and add so much pleasure to our lives. I am an urban gardener, love the fruits & vegetables I grow so enjoyed painting them.  I tried to capture their energy and the incredible life force that is a vegetable garden. My aim was that viewers would share the amazing variety of colours and forms in the plants we grow and eat.

One thought on “Vegetable Kingdom”

  1. I am wondering if you have a public gallery and if any of these paintings are not sold. I saw your work at Van Dusen and love your work.
