My painting practice is, like a twin, both impressionism and expressionism.
My landscape paintings are impressionist local scenes using paint and gestural marks. fleeting moments captured in paint. I adore the sensation of painting or drawing in nature and trying to capture its essence in the moment, the seasons and the distinctive colours of the land.
My studio works experiment in more conceptual compositions, graphic still life botanical arrangements. Heavily influenced by the expressionist movement, where the use of colour is vivid and deliberately intense, where the emotional mood of the day is revealed in the work. I use larger canvases and intensity of colour or pattern to create expressive works. Bringing bold colour into a room is transformative.
