Botanical nature is the language in my work. Used as a metaphor for the passing of time these forms also serve to enable an investigation of personal experiences.
Playing with colour, composition, media and mark I aim to spark a recall or sensation. The resulting paintings are often dreamlike; something partially remembered and recalled by the stimulation of another sense.
I enjoy using rich colours and a strong tonal range as I feel this creates a deeper sense of emotions such as joy, contemplation and melancholy, and sometimes a bit of drama.
