In November 2018 I began painting guns to look like landscapes.  Working with the well known Dutch artist Sam Drukker as my mentor, I focused on form, colour and texture.  By blending two subjects together and by not looking at my paper while drawing, I found a path towards working more abstractly.  This has created room in my mind to begin asking questions about atmospheric perspective, semiotics, the effect of giving forms multiple readings, and symbolic use of colour.  As the wife of a soldier these works portray my feelings of powerlessness in relation to finding a solution to human violence.
