I am deeply spiritual painter and being plugged in intuitively allows me to channel my work, which means it all comes from a higher source, or the Universe if you like.
I never really know what I’m going to paint until almost completion, I love the excitement of each creation and finding the message within.
I really love to paint how things feel to me, or their true essence.
I want my viewer to find the story within them selves through my work.
Every painting has a story and the ability to heal through it’s own vibration. I understand how paintings can touch your soul.
Using lots of paint in layers and plenty of glazing medium that creates depth and a translucency really adds to the magic of my paintings. I use brushes, fingers, pallet knives, spatulas, or what ever is at my finger tips to make marks or push the paint around the canvas, because I love texture too. Putting paint on then scrapping it off, then putting more on, then scrapping that off, scratching in symbols and maybe just lines.
Mostly though it’s all about the colour, I kind of think you can paint what ever you like and it will be successful if you use the right colour in the right place.
My inspiration is my urgent need to get all those paintings that are inside me just begging to be created, out and into the world.
I also find colours and patterns inspiring, sometimes the most bizarre colour combinations actually come from nature.
I have painted a lot of paintings with nature and bees, the symbology of bees is so amazing if you take the time to read about it. I also went through a period of time when I just wanted to put certain colours next to each other in a more abstract fashion.
I really don't want to put myself into a box and say I am any certain kind of painter, each time I think I am this or that, I change into something else through my constant experimentation. I do know that I am an authentic painter, staying true to my inner knowing. Upon reflection colour really is my thing, so if there needs to be a label then that’s it.
