"Mayan Jungle" by Jeri Canderan

As an optimist, I want my art work to create positive feelings.  My favourite subjects are seascapes, flowers, animals, butterflies and objects of desire.  Bold colourful compositions evoke excitement and joy; images from nature help reduce stress and give hope; abstract and semi-abstract compositioins are a result of an inner desire to express ideas in a unique way. 

I am inspired by Van Gogh for his textured surfaces, by Cori Creed for her energetic brushwork and use of colour, and by Klimt for his love of pattern.  I am excited with the idea of incorporating more than one medium in my art work.  Mixed media allows for risk which then leads to new discoveries.

An image is captured in a moment of time on a blank surface. That surface then comes alive with colour, light, texture, and movement.  The moment that was once ignored, now draws attention -- and is remembered.
