I strive for my paintings to initiate a conversation.
Colour, layers, marks, patterns and texture within the painting reflect one expressive moment which leads to the next.
I don’t begin a painting with a defined outcome in mind. The beginnings of my paintings are generally influenced by my mood. I lay down initial marks or washes of colour that then determine the direction of the painting, often over many layers.
My prompt is generally nature inspired and it could be something as simple as encountering a fallen bloom on the pavement, the texture and pattern of the bark on a tree, or the way I feel walking along the beach.
