Artist Statement 

I’ve found through my work, that there is a bridge between what’s visible with the eye, and what can’t be readily seen. 
In my practise, I’ve developed a unique technique that heightens my awareness and allows me to tap into a form of waking dreaming.  I use this method every time I touch canvas, paper, printing stones and plates.


When I step into the studio, I release any preconceived ideas of how to work. During the weeks, often months it can take to complete a work, I take direction from the painting. By relaxing and allowing the painting to develop without conscious inference, something I haven’t seen before emerges.


I paint in layers, and as the 20, 30, often 40 layers of glazes develop, light will refract and the painting will change each time you view it. Sometimes I turn the painting upside down and sideways to paint. It’s the unpredictability and imperfections that transform the finished piece into something that sings its own song.


With each stroke of the brush, I bridge the gap between the conscious and the unconscious, weaving together the threads of the dream realm and the tangible world. It is the pulsating natural world that I paint, the earth as alive, changing and always responding to human actions.


My paintings serve as portals, inviting viewers to step into the space where imagination and reality intertwine.  I hope to ignite a spark of curiosity and contemplation, to inspire a deeper connection with the living earth that surrounds us. By acknowledging the Earth's responsiveness, we can forge a more symbiotic relationship, one that honors the interconnected web of life and ensures a thriving future for generations to come.
