“My work is about nature, texture and colour as well as a journey of time and change.
The sea, the mountains, sunsets and the sky, the feelings of force or calm that they elicit in me are the inspirations for my work. I use texture and colour to share a sense of the emotions that come from nature.
Working intuitively and not knowing where the painting will take me is what drives me as an artist. I begin a piece with only the palette in mind, using many layers and various techniques to manipulate the paint and then allow it to settle as it chooses. I go on to create from the shapes and textures formed by chance.
Abstract art is open to interpretation, and that is one of the beautiful things about it. It gives you the freedom to explore the artwork and bring your own meaning to the piece. This intensely personal process enriches the viewers experience my artwork.”
