My work draws on inspiration from the natural world, architectural forms and letterforms. I’m drawn to land and seascapes with a compelling atmosphere - black rock outcroppings edging a frothy white sea, deeply textured oak tree bark, silver light dancing on an indigo sea, the rich, vibrant colours of a late evening hillside town in Mexico.
I paint with a sense of discovery and remembrance about a place - in layers over and under shapes, graphic lines, textures and colours. At first, it calls on intuition through mark making and laying down colour and textures until the idea presents itself.
I work primarily in acrylic and ink enhanced by multi media. I make tools from foraged botanical materials and home made inks to create one-of-a-kind marks. Early work includes mono prints and hand lettered pieces. Currently, my paintings explore ideas of connection - to place, to a memory, to an idea.
