Here I enjoy intuitive painting with colour and texture, using oil and acrylic. I find a wonderful freedom in my expression, working organically on large format works.
My process of creativity begins with an irrestable urge to challenge myself to find the colours on my palette that resonate with what I am feeling – to unearth from deep within and bring them to the light.
As I mix the paints, I see the vibrant colours bursting forth. With my brushes and painting knives I apply them to the canvas...and they begin to sing.
Its like pulsating energies, unlimited possibilities of textures, shape and harmonious colours coming to life. They guide me in the process of painting, as I listen to what they are saying.
I never know at that moment how this energy will manifest on to the canvas or what will emerge as the final painting.
I'm happy to watch the painting unfold in its own time – to see and feel the energy of colours as they seek form and expression, softly connecting our world, our senses.
Creating art takes me on a journey of reflection and contemplation – bringing feelings of calm and tranquility. Guided by the simplicity and beauty I find in nature – bringing joy and moments of reflection to others – continues to inspire me on my artistic journey.
