Wallis encourages the viewer to reconnect with nature through her careful observations of the world just outside our doorsteps.  A firm believer that a disconnect from nature perilously effects both human health and vitality, Wallis hopes to ellicit a reawakening in the viewer to the powers and benefits of a communion with nature.   Wallis entices the viewer into her paintings by providing visual “openings” into her work.

“I offer through my paintings an atmospheric suggestion of possibility or the probability of the moment. It is what I don’t depict, the parts I leave out that is sometimes the most important element of my work. These ‘openings’ invite the viewer to participate by joining the colours and images with their own imagination.”
