PAINTINGS

A tangle of blooms, a snippet of blue sky, a shard of strong sunlight or the brief relationship between a favourite mug and a collection of fresh garden pickings.

 

Botanical nature is the language I use most but as a metaphor for the passing of time.  I am interested in capturing those moments of peace when we feel connected with the things around us and  pause to appreciate them.

 

Most recently I have begun exploring the way I visualise time.  These abstract compositions depict the year as a series  of shapes and colours  each signifying chunks of time or important events past and present.    

 

I play with colour, composition, media and marks to spark a recall of sensation such as joy, contemplation or melancholy.  The aim is to find the comfort  of warm memories.
