A Few Words

To go inwards takes courage, to really look inside yourself and start reflecting on who you are, your experiences, your trauma, forcing you to be vulnerable.

The act of painting and internalised thoughts and feelings are connected. They are connected because through painting I externalise these ideas. Through going inward, creates a need to express these ideas which then results in my works I create, but it also creates an understanding with myself and who I am. They become one, and when they do this is where I believe the magic really happens, where I feel a part of me then resides within the work; I become a part of the work. That is why I paint.

My inspiration and ideas come from my external surroundings, as well as my internal self. I have a great affinity with landscape and find immense comfort in the rural and wild spaces that I have been fortunate enough to grow up in and that continue to surround me as an adult. There is a real sense of belonging to these landscapes and I believe they help to shape who I am as an individual. They pass through me, as do the conversations, people and sounds of the everyday in a diluted form, filtering into my subconscious and releasing externally into my work.

I hope this to be something my viewers can also seek out and experience in some form through my work.
