‘My ethos is fluid, open and colourful. Water flows, so does my abstract art. I am inspired by our amazing ocean, river and coastal landscapes, a quality-loving creative mother and a mathematical engineering fun father. Cornish raised, state-degree-educated, global business wise and South West London living fuse to celebrate my creativity. Painting for me is very freeing, momentary and healthy. Once a piece is finished, I remember a curious happiness from a time well spent.
I often pour water based paints, preferring acrylics for their range of consistency. Gestural brush marks create movement with more solid shapes adding a depth and floating sensation inspired by nature. I like to use companies with a sustainability focus such as St Cuthberts paper mill in Somerset or Fabriano paper mill in Italy. I have a reuse/recycle policy.
