    • About this painting -

      The first marks in my work come from an intuitive place, a colour palette has usually been decided but not the subject. I begin with a thought or feeling and work freely from there, adding layers of paint, marks, text and collage until I reach a point where the process of subtraction is required to bring the piece to a finished composition.


      Rich in both colour and texture, this abstract painting feels vibrant and expressive.  Bold brush marks sit against delicate lines which are scratched into the paint allowing the under layers to show through.

      Thick paint has been added and subtracted with the residual imprint left exposed. I love how alive this piece feels to me.


      This was painted with 'Wild echinacea' - they compliment one another beautifully :)
