About

For me, making art is a quest to know more and look deeper.

My painting process is spontaneous, thoughts and feelings follow one another onto the canvas in the form of symbols, marks and colours. I have no preconceived outcome, nor do I judge what appears. I allow complete freedom to the idea to develop of its own accord as I work intuitively with colour and line in a range of mediums, including acrylic paint, oil based pencil, ink and oil pastel.

I paint in layers, slowly making sense of the tale unfolding on my canvas. I observe what appears, read the meanings of the symbols and imagery, take note of ideas that take hold in my head as I paint. A painting is finished when the narrative is complete and I have understood the message it contains.

Each painting is part of the visual journal of my quest. I think of them as talismans, imbued with the power and meaning of the marks they bear. Each one contains a lesson, a message or a map from my unconscious, an opportunity to grow and develop in my understanding of myself and the world.
