The energy of this place is bright and bouncy! Nothing stays still and no form is solid. The trees are beautiful dark not-quite-solid forms. I am obsessed with the open spaces between the leaves and branches ~ shapes that are always changing as the wind blows and leaves grow and fall.

Creating without a plan and making use of negative space is the exciting and sometimes surprising part of the painting process ~ making blocks of colour which have open ‘negative’ spaces lets the colours from previous layers shine through and interact with the layers on top.  The blocks of dark let the sparkling light in.

The new collection is about capturing the romance of the landscape and the sense of longing for escape that it represents.

Working within a loose structure of an imagined or remembered place gives me the freedom to play with abstraction and to explore and express the feeling of being in a beautiful natural environment, without trying to depict reality.

The process of building layers in an unplanned way gives the work an exciting energy. Using a variety of transparent and opaque layers, some earlier marks are kept and others covered. This overlapping of shapes and colours reveals the essence and story of the painting.

Literal landscape references like trees or reflections of water may appear, but it’s the abstract organic shapes and pops of colour - the glittery light popping through the leaves or the snake-like puddly shadows below the trees - that lead the viewer through the painting to a place of quiet reflection and calm.
