Artist Statement

Having come from a background in interior design and an artistic upbringing I like to merge my unique use of colour, technique and detail with my desire to create pieces of art that are spontaneous and intuitive as well as calming and peaceful.

I use a combination of materials and work predominantly with oil as it gives my paintings vibrancy while matching colours that work in harmony. My paintings are a mix of abstract with detail and by giving them 3 dimensional elements I offer a rich diversity of art work to enhance any interior space. I enjoy the excitement of creating a new challenge, a new experience, exploring a variety of different emotions to complement my work.

I wish my pieces of art to stand independently; my designer instincts always place my work in my eye as part of an enhanced interior, often contemporary.

Intuitively I have painted one series which I describe as a geometric 3-D perspective abstract, which leans on my architectural background of visuals. These were painted in mixed media, with an acrylic base followed by oil and pastel. Here, whatever the angle, I wish the viewer to appreciate the essence of light and shade, tones that evolve when viewing 3 dimensional forms interplayed with the depth of perspective, while also wishing to stimulate the viewer’s mind and challenge their senses.
