Sometimes we can find ourselves in an overwhelming and debilitating situation where hope seems elusive. Where imagining life on the other side of whatever it is we are facing, seems impossible to envision. Discouragement and despair seem to encrypt hope’s code, denying any access. And, in these times of darkness, our tools for deciphering feel impaired, causing our mental, emotional and spiritual health to suffer.
This painting titled, ‘Decoding Hope’, depicts a colourful cluster of neurons growing in connective solidarity, recircuiting around an area of damage. This speaks to hope’s endeavor to convert our lived realities into a more comprehensible form. One in which we learn to recognize and interpret hope’s code by allowing God to transform the way in which we see and experience it..

About the Neuron Series
My expressive paintings on neuron-centric subject matter advocate for communities in the realms of rare disease, neuroscience, and mental health. The content originated with my daughter’s rare genetic disorder. I became intrigued by the complexity and beauty of the human brain, inspired by the hope of its ability to re-circuit around inflicted damage.
I bring expressionistic, experiential fine art to the scientific community, yet incorporate scientific research and structure into the world of artistic expression. While the genre of digital neuro imaging is emerging, my unique approach weaves this ground-breaking content with human experience, creativity and painterly tradition - supporting fine art’s foothold amidst the growing influence of technology. My imagery intentionally blurs the lines of the abstract and physiological - recognizable as neurons to those with a trained eye but inclusive to all who are curious.
