I am a mixed media painter and work intuitively, creating work that is expressionist and abstract. My life experience has many colours - deep blue, thick brown and dense black; yet there are sparks of orange, yellow and green - the colours of hope, delight and surprise.
My work gives shape to my inner spiritual world, feelings and beliefs. My inspiration flows form a place where I feel the immensity of creation, where I am a part of something bigger than myself. Through painting I share the invisible thread of trust I have in the Creator.
My use of intense colour is intuitive, colour “feels”, it has a “sound” and it calls for a response. I listen to the sounds in the stillness. I am aware of the sun on my arms. I breathe deeply. I tune in to my senses which trigger memories of joy, sadness, wonder and loss - absorbing them into my consciousness. This is what I paint. The recognizable becomes abstract and eventually only an etherial element remains. Silent ghosts, memories, impressions - an essence of me.
My art is for you, the viewer, it is not complicated, it reflects my passion for creating and making, interpreting the world around me. It is a visual journey. I hope to bring colour and positive creative energy into your space - wherever that may be. When the ambiguous, enigmatic elements of my work reach down into your imagination, you may find an echo of yourself there.
