Artist’s Statement

My artwork is the investigation and response to organic forms such as dried vegetation, shells and flowers. Their complexities of texture, line, shape and colour represent a uniqueness which I aspire to evoke and visually debate in my work. Resulting in varying interpretations of the original form not previously realised.

I experiment with the media within each painting: building up the surfaces in certain areas of the painting with collage, gouache, varnish and oils. I leave other parts of the image simpler with suggestive lines. The results of these techniques mean that the highly rendered surfaces contrast with the simpler, to produce varying interpretations of the original form.
