My work is a record of my dialogue with the external world. Everything that I experience influences my paintings. Scenes have been set into my memory which
develop into images that take on their own forms. They start from allowing shapes to develop, change and grow.
They are constantly changing, I scrape, draw, redraw,
adding paint and layers of texture to build on what was
there, hiding underneath. They have a life of their own, and I am just the catalyst for it's evolution.
The final image is a dialogue between me, the images and in the end the viewer
I use many different mediums, such as clay, acrylics, and pastels. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style.
I enjoy hiking in my spare time and many of my pieces are directly influenced by these hikes in nature. I love recreating plants and wildlife in my work.
