Vivid Expressions In Nature
When I paint, it’s about the now: it is exhilarating to be in the mode of creating. I typically have no plan other than putting paint to canvas and responding intuitively to what evolves. I thrive on that freedom – perhaps it’s my rebellious nature, after years of toeing the line… school, Uni, getting a ‘real’ job!
My art is my escape: there are no rules, no rights or wrongs.
There’s just me, the paint, and the canvas.
I draw on what I know: the places I’ve been, my life experiences. And I draw on my years of creative experience. I have always had a ‘good eye’ – for colour, for design, for the aesthetically pleasing.
And I paint what I know: my love of country, of nature, of colour. Inherently, I am also influenced by contemporary issues such as climate change and societal distractions, such as the likes of this ‘unprecedented’ Covid.
And from that I create unique, intuitive landscapes, florals, abstracts. Some have a message; some are just to distract me, and you, from the woes of the world.
I am an intuitive design artist that creates art that not only looks good, but is also good for the soul.
