About

When I come to create I often fall into a quiet contemplation and meditative space, and in that, my mind will often simply surrender to the deeper presence of spaciousness. It is here that I wait for the intention, the vision, or the inference of the ‘next step’ of my art practice.

The movement to the creating is intuitive. Sometimes it occurs daily, other times weeks may go by. It does not seem to be a movement from the mind, but rather from the body. A somewhat organic process.

Over the years my creativity has explored many forms: painting, textiles, drawing, collage and printmaking. However, in 2017 I committed to painting from a deeper contemplation of spaciousness culminating in a new body of work being exhibited in 2018. In this exploration I am inspired by the works of Agnes Martin, Mark Rothko and the humble works used as visual aids in meditation from Rajasthan, India, compiled in the book ‘Tantra Song’ by French poet, Frank André Jamme.

Over the last few years I have learned the value of slow, quiet and simple; and how these can inform and enrich my work.

I reside with my partner in Byron Bay, nurtured by the surrounding natural beauty.
