Artist's Statement

Something within me is always waiting to emerge.  During my unconscious time I listen for what is seeking expression, then  joyfully engage with whatever surfaces...  Creativity takes many forms: writing, music, art, dance, business, inventions... The possibilities are limitless.  As I quiet my inner critic, I invite my creativity to come alive...

In my work, spontaneous movement is as much a medium as the paint itself...sweeping, relaxed motion allows me to instinctively lay down form and colour in a fluid, high energy manner which keeps the work very physical in nature...
Combining the right colours for the right feeling comes from my soul...

As a self taught artist, I have approached my art with abandoned intuition and  as my painting continues to evolve, it is still  in pursuit of the same capture that feeling of mystery and awe that compels me to paint...

As a self-taught artist, I have approached my art with abandoned intuition and as my painting continues to evolve, it is still in pursuit of the same goal…to capture that feeling of mystery and awe that compels me to paint…
