Artist Statement

The paintings I make are a response to everyday experiences. A collection of images describing indistinct yet specific moments, often taking the form of vibrant landscapes. I get distracted by everyday objects. I have a fascination with the movement of water, the distortion of the reflective surface. I focus on the negative space between the trees, using it to create form. I become obsessed with a grainy iPhone photo that can be reworked in multiple ways. Something as insignificant as a pencil sketch or a line from a poem becomes a foundation for a whole series of paintings. The paint itself becomes a system to process and manipulate my ideas, working in multiple layers and adding or changing elements as the painting unfolds. I work on paintings slowly over time, often discarding the original image and letting the layers of paint construct their own significance. The works are vivid and lively and my colour choices play a huge role in the work. Often I feel things in heightened colour, so I can describe much better what I need to say in colour.
