Current themes are inspired by the beauty of nature, capturing the ever-shifting light of the seasons and sharing our complex and nuanced connection to landscape.
This series of oil paintings are a celebration of movement, growth, overcoming and of wellness. It is asking us to thrive, to evolve and to adapt in the same brilliant way our environment so beautifully does. By utilizing and manipulating traditional painting techniques I hope to highlight the lush and layered experience of seasonal growth. It is important to note that the work is created through observation, memory and experience so that it is sensual and emotive.
So often we look through a screen, scroll through a feed or communicate through text and this work stands in opposition. For me creating is reconnecting with my inner knowing, it is practicing the art of observation and it is feeling rather than seeing.
