Painting on wood panels, I first build up the surface with alternate layers of collage and acrylic paint. I then start sanding. This process reveals the under layers and I embrace the accidental, which gives energy and life to the work. My aim is not for the landscape to look real but for it to feel real. I am always experimenting, I am always learning and my process is always evolving.
My work addresses nature's resilience, cycles of regeneration and our relationship with nature. We are drawn to nature and open spaces, and we have an innate urge to connect to the earth and remember that we are part of it. We are inspired, relaxed and rejuvenated. In turn, this connection also makes us care for and protect those places that we hold sacred.
