Abstract artist, painter, maker and stitcher are some of the many names I'd use to describe myself within my creative practice.
I'm endlessly inspired by the process of creativity and the opportunity to translate how I experience the world around me through line, shape and colour.
After leaving university to embark on my entrepreneurial journey (not that I knew what that was back then), little did I know how many twists and turns I'd experience along the way. From clothes and furniture making to interiors and mentoring young entrepreneurs, my creative career has been varied and interesting! Fast forward to now, I recently left behind my day job to fully immerse myself in my art practice. My days are spent in my studio, painting, connecting with creative communities and bringing art workshops to life so I can share this wonderful space with others.
ONLINE ART EXHIBITION
This painting taught me new things - it's full of subtle nuances in colour, pattern and line - let your eyes meander from one part to another, allow your mind wander and rest.
Unexpected things happened, marks danced between being heavy and bold to quiet and meditative.
It's like it just knew - I love it when this happens, it's a gentle reminder to always have trust in the process!
My latest work
A bold underpainting
begins with markmaking
and blurring lines
expanding and contracting
to create definition
and a quiet chaos
