I create abstract paintings on canvas using oil point and organic matter. Also gouaches on paper.
I am inspired by nature, colour, light and dark; the glimpse of a landscape in a pebble or stone wall, cellular forms, clouds and dreams. The preparation of my hand stretched canvas is a five day process – primer applied and when dry rubbed down until I have the most velvety surface. I use oil paints, mainly, mixed with whatever recipe I am exploring at that moment. Sometimes organic matter may be added. I have no idea how the work will evolve. But begin I do and sometimes I may succeed in creating order from the chaos.
