Looking up at the space just below the treetops - the part of the sky held by the sweeping branches. Trees on each side of the road reaching with long branches towards the centre. Towards the other side. My mind transported to a place of peace and escape. Somehow this airy freedom feels grounding and supportive.

'Shadow & glow' was created in the midst of the pandemic, after the initial discombobulation settled and the slivers of gold started to appear. 

Lockdown meant long stretches of time to paint and a chance to focus on the important things. I noticed a growing attachment to nature and an increased yearning to be out in the natural world. Daily walks through the tiny pockets of nature - not usually the main feature of inner city living - became the highlight and the inspiration for the new works.

Short winter days meant walks usually happened just before dusk, when everything intensified.


As a painter, I am inspired by the abstract shapes and colours in the suburban landscape. I aim to create a beautiful atmosphere for viewers to feel and connect with, rather than trying to depict reality.

I am equally drawn to the shadows and the glow - the beautiful soft-edged shadows cast by trees and the glow of the sinking sun and changing traffic lights. Tiny brightly coloured flowers against blocks of blue-green leaves, white branches and pale foggy air.
