I have a BA(Hons)Textile Design but recently I have returned to painting and mixed media journals.
I am interested in making paintings that are ambiguous and enable the viewer to distinguish their own shapes and narratives. Using colour I hope to create an instinctive emotional response to my work. I am inspired by the natural world, organic shapes and landscapes. I am passionate about colour and its ability to resonate in a subconcious way.
I paint in acrylics in a free and spontaneous way layering colour, texture and patterns until an image forms. Each painting taking its own journey. I see the creative process as intuitive expression, the process itself is more important than the final outcome.
I joined the Fire Monkey Art Collective at the Hotwalls Studios in Old Portsmouth on the 4th May 2018. I now work in Studio number 1 a few days a week. My work is permanently displayed in the studio along with prints, cards, cushions, mugs etc which are all for sale.
