Painting simply brings me into the present moment. It’s utterly joyful. It’s playful. I paint because being creative for me is essential. It connects me to the world. It’s a vehicle for channeling my thoughts, my musings and emotions.
Settling down in the studio and watching the brush strokes dance across the surface is meditative. Painting allows me to;
My inspiration comes from everywhere. There is beauty in everything. My work is a reflection of my personality, my imagination and emotions. I play with colour, form and composition to achieve the unexpected. I layer up, I scrape back. I do and I undo. Each piece is a joyful journey of discovery.
I studied Media & Visual Arts at Plymouth University and later an MA in Contemporary Visual Arts at Falmouth School of Art.
