Artist Statement

My work evolves using layers of line and colour. Impressions form from different elements of nature and are translated through the composition of smaller units to build complex layers creating movement through repetition and patterns. My images, paintings, prints — manual and digital — are abstracted representations of what I see in the everyday natural world around me — impressions, reflections, and configurations, a deconstruction of what is represented when I look at the natural world.

The work TAPESTRY is the capture of water movement brought still into a tapestry of colours reflected by sunlight.

Painted in April 2022
