Trish draws inspiration from the organic landscapes in the Midwest and the Carolinas. She also adds a global perspective by including memories from travels to paint in Europe, India, China, Japan and Nepal where she paints plein air in the environments she is experiencing. Trish’s signature works portray expressionist views of nature that seem to breathe and vibrate with amazing energy. These are created by combining simple compositions with complex layers of color using a palette knife to intensify the clarity and impact of the colors. Her technique with the palette knife shows both delicate detail and also creates bold swaths that intensify the experience. Despite her strong technique, her composition and palette maintain a serenity; and the subject maintains a delicacy.
Trish’s art achieves a unique balance in its constituent elements, which may account for the sense of well being it brings to viewers. Those who experience her work routinely comment on how good it makes them feel, and describe it as a tactile experience or “a dance with color.”
