artist statement

 

I love colour, it interests me, it excites me, and it grabs my attention. There is much to  investigate when you put one colour next to another…. there are rules, and there is experimentation ……. yet colour is only one of a number of elements for consideration in making work.

I returned to painting after a three year intensive period culminating with an installation piece as part of  the ‘In the Middle of Somewhere’ exhibition; during the summer of 2018 at the Canwood Gallery and Sculpture Park.

During 2019 Using e- learning I participated in Find Your Joy, a course perfectly set for this return to painting and followed with The Creative Visionary Path course run through the Art2Life Academy.

Making the change from existential concerns to investigating an intuitive/abstract approach, is proving to be the perfect visual tool for introspection, creativity and philosophy. My daily practice is joyful and surprising.
