SHORT ARTIST STATEMENT
I use drawing materials with acrylics to create abstract works that subtly reference the natural world – its patterns and processes - as well as things intangible and unseen.
My approach is organic, allowing each piece to evolve with a balance of intuition and thoughtful consideration. Nature’s colours, markings and processes influence my work on canvas and paper, both consciously and unconsciously. A pleasing composition gradually emerges from the addition and subtraction of paint and crayon, with traces of previous marks creating a sense of depth. I want my paintings to be luminous, mysterious and sensitive, but with some element that the viewer can connect with.
