"My artwork explores shape, movement, texture, shadows, and reflective light in landscapes and water. I use color to evoke a sense of depth, to stimulate the senses, and to represent light and shadow. My imaginative variations of colour are spontaneous, dramatic, alive, cheerful, passionate, calming, soothing, and tranquil"
Courtney is currently experimenting with texture and color in an abstract series entitled "Transpose". Transpose explores sand and water meeting on the shore.
Courtney is also exploring texture with her framed interior decor accent pieces. They can each stand alone or be grouped together on a wall. Each one is an individual piece of texture framed in a black floating frame. They compliment any room big or small.
