My recent art has returned to my favorite topics: flowers, fruits, vegetables and landscape specific to this area. I never paint from photographs, preferring instead to work using direction observation from life. I enjoy my daily struggles which capture the specific light conditions of the day, wondering if it will be windy, warm or too cold for work outside. What intrigues me so about plants and the land, is the energy and power they have over us all. They shape and mold us, whether we are aware of this power of not. I make a deliberate attempt to convey the power and wonder of nature in my paintings and drawings, inviting you as a viewer to take a closer look. My influences are diverse. I'm inspired by the Cubists, Post Impressionists, Abstract Expressionists, Japanese and Chinese Calligraphy, Aboriginal Australian Art and Pop Art. I also enjoy the idea of animation in my work and try to employ some of the playful spirit of Looney Tunes cartoons. - Stephanie Rose Bird
