My inspiration comes from land sea and sky and I use painting to attempt a sense of peace within these powerful elements. Having lived in the mountains and by the sea, I feel this has heavily influenced my work.
The focus is on the fine line that separates them, but also makes them one. I find the more I explore this the further away that line becomes. Music plays a huge part in the process and I allow the painting to reveal itself naturally and without question, similar to a meditation.
I use Acid free tissue paper in a sculptural way and add layers of paint, sometimes taking them off to reveal older colours underneath. My intention is to make it feel untouched I suppose, pure, but real. As if it has existed for a very long time. I want to convey a feeling of peace while exploring colour and movement and feel it is important to give the observer a glimpse into the artistic process; to let them see the layers through which they were created.
