In my paintings I use a variety of mixed media and love using alcohol ink to create the colour and liquid shapes that form my pieces, sometimes finishing a piece with a resin coating.
I enjoy mark making to complete a work.
The subject or idea of what I paint comes to me through my Interior Design work, my beautiful surroundings at home and while travelling and interactions with or by observing people.
develop in my head and once I start painting they grow into an expression of a thought or image of something that compelled me to communicate that on to canvas.
It is a process that I enjoy learning from and creating it on canvas enables a sense of satisfaction and peace. My work is as abstract as my thought process and each piece varies as to what is playing on my mind.
I have been painting for over 20 years and the mediums I work in have developed and expanded with me. I am a member of the Northland Society of Arts and am currently exhibiting at Reyburn House.
My slab clay work is ever changing and developing as I learn, I like to create pieces that are functional in the home and also have an organic appeal. Working with clay has allowed me to extend my creativity in a 3 dimensional sense.
