Statement

Do you ever stop, look & listen to hidden elements around you?
On my daily walks, I draw energy from little unnoticed secrets in your surroundings. My semi-abstract art pieces - sea, rural and urban themes - capture the essence of the colours, patterns & spaces, inviting you to connect, pause & refresh.

To build a surface with depth, I layer warm and cool colours, dark and light. Intriguing impressions emerge from nature as I apply paint with my hands and textured objects rather than brushes. I favour acrylics and mixed media to express a subtlety into my square landscapes. Specifically chosen music helps me to transfer a touch of movement into each piece, creating energy and calm. I like some transparency in the top layers for a sense of what lies behind my final story.

I work in my studio early in the mornings, creating expressionistic, abstract canvases inspired by my inquisitive nature, capturing details that attract my attention - mostly passed by unnoticed. I breathe in the calm serentiy of nature, of water, of landscapes and the sea.
