A key process of each painting is visualising each work within an interior scheme. Always allowing every mark made to show through somewhere, as each and every layer make up the complete journey of the piece.
A painting can?t ever really be complete; every change of light, new inspiration or accidental paint stroke, all contribute to bringing something else to the canvas. It therefore comes down to knowing when to stop making marks, acknowledge the highlights and transfer those highlights to the next canvas. Ever evolving.
Current contemporary abstract works consist of layer upon layer of contrasting thin textured washes, against blended brushwork and thick impasto layers. Varying gloss levels, contemporary colours are emphasised with collage. A love of raw edges as well as etched and drawn lines.
Pattern and depth are introduced, etched into the layers exposing the layers. Inspired by jewellery, fabric, interiors, travel, photography.
