Artist on the Isle of Wight
I live and work on the Isle of Wight where the sea surrounds me. This physical and geographical fact is the reason I’m so interested in ‘fluidity’.
I’m taking the word fluidity loosely to mean connection, mutability, ways of thinking and the possibility of things unknown. The paintings explore my ideas and questions about reality; through colour, space and contrast. I’ve practised yoga and meditation for many years, and this also informs my art.
My process oscillates between deliberation and relinquishing control. I like to experiment with art materials. I love the power of changeability and impermanence and the plasticity of paint; I’m interested in what it can do, and where it can take you.
About my art environment
I immerse myself in the natural environment, walking, cycling and sitting. Sometimes working on paintings outside, as a direct response to being in the natural environment, my studio practice is important to the development of the work.
