Home Lights
July 9 – 30, 2022

My Home series was inspired by contemplating homes in the evening as they rest under twilit skies. Walking through familiar neighbourhoods with only the sound of an occasional car going by, I take in those still, quiet evenings of days winding down and families enjoying a respite after a hurried day. The comforting smells of freshly cut grass, a log burning over a fireplace, and a home cooked meal brought to mind thoughts of belonging, serenity and peace. This spoke to me about the universal longing for a place like that; what could be thought of as a true home. Rather than illustrate these scenes, I sought to recreate those experiences in a way that would ultimately speak to the heart.
