As the year progressed and we still found ourselves at home, I started to travel and distract myself even more through my art.Filling that growing need for freedom and calmness. Combining memories of walks in England, with short visits to nearby parks and my colourful garden. Embracing something timeless and placeless, yet recognisable.
An ode towards the ethereal, magical tones and moods of nature. Exploring the boundaries between imagination and reality, abstraction and figurative imagery. Inviting the viewer to see more, and to look longer.
Expressive and dynamic paintings full of colour, life, promise and abundance. Symbolising the possibility of starting anew, to let dreams blossom and to dance. Not telling the story of the flower, but the story of life, love and energy.
Within a whirlwind of emotion and unseen danger, the world is slowing down. Being more aware of the need for togetherness and light. This is also seeping in to my work. Energy versus calmness, soft lines against rough textures. Within this uncertain life, a new and gentler awareness is arising.
Remembering and embracing the slow rhythms of the seasons and places of travel, whilst wandering, as an artistic nomad, with textures and paint on canvas from one place or feeling to the next. Searching for that harmony that is always apparent in nature.
Magical energy that cascades downwards and upwards in a wash of colour that inspires and enlightens. All these paintings can be hung vertically and horizontally, showing the interconnected flow of energy between all living things on earth.
The intersections of life, the moments when paths cross and we are at the intersection of who we are now and the known, towards whomever we want to become and the unknown. There’s no such thing as the wrong decision. There’s simply the decision you make and the opportunity to make it again.
Abstracted visions inspired by geology found on or in the earth and beyond. A free and visual interpretation of the processes by where dust, gasses and or pressure accumulates into larger bodies such as stars and planets, as well as caves, minerals and crystals
These three dimensional works emerged after an early morning walk in 2019 near my home. Primarily made because I enjoyed the process of trying to capture something that I saw in a different and slightly altered language.
