I’ve always needed to paint and currently my creative journey give me an escape from family life to a mostly solitary environment where I can process, respond and convey emotions and memories on to canvas.
Looking over past works it’s easy for me to see where I’ve portrayed joy, frustration or peace. Concepts begin where I feel compelled to make drawings, jot down words or phrases plus a lot of thinking and 'painting in my mind' until I feel I have enough conviction to make marks on canvas.
It’s almost meditative, where time disappears and intuition can take over from an original concept which I’ve learnt to trust over time. Being outdoors in nature has also given me endless inspiration with its forms, compositions and the ever changing weather and light.
I’m fascinated by our human connection with this and the desire to respond with visual interpretations.
