Having worked in Garden Design, I feel a strong connection with plant material, nature and the landscape, and it is the main source of inspiration in my work.
My painting process incorporates many different materials including acrylic paints and inks, tissues and collage papers, mediums, pastels and sometimes plant material. I work in many layers creating texture, which is very important to me, and building up a rich patina.
A sense of place is also very important to me, be it intimate or vast and wild. Also important to me is the atmosphere of a place, the transient effects of light and space, and I hope to reflect this in my painting.
