ARTIST STATEMENT

My paintings are a reflection of my surroundings, memories and an imaginary world - a whimsical place that exists in my mind. I create a world I want to live in to escape the everyday. 

My artwork is inspired by nature and I like to focus on bringing the outside in. I try to capture the essence of a landscape, stylizing it and abstracting it to make it my own through the use of colour, repetition, texture and pattern. I work spontaneously, rarely with a set plan in mind before I begin.

My colour palette is governed by my mood and general feeling I want to create within each painting. I love experimenting with unusual colour combinations that are not typically found in nature; taking a familiar subject and making something new and unexpected.
