The act of seeing something comes before the process of reacting to it. Some people are unable to see colours, and other people see colour differently from the majority, but generally our eyes all work in the same way, the same stimulus produces the same responses in everyone’s visual system. What happens after is another matter. Once our eyes have allowed us to experience a colour, it is everything else about ourselves that determines the meaning and emotions we attach to it.
I am a process painter; using the shapes and contours of the watercolour paint to dictate the image I construct and deconstruct by using black ink to create silhouettes, bringing to life A whole new painting.
playing with the fundamentals and the grammar of painting to create abstract backgrounds that are best described as an experiment with the fundamental process of painting. Grounded by the representational image of the silhouette, creating paintings that are rich in both colour and texture.
I am inspired to paint by the beautiful colours that lie on this planet capturing a stillness of that beauty in my paintings to share to people.
