To me, making art is a quest to know more & look deeper. My process is spontaneous, I work intuitively with colour & line in a range of mediums: acrylic, pencil, ink & pastel. I paint in layers, slowly making sense of the tale unfolding on my canvas. I observe what appears, read the meanings of the symbols & imagery, take note of ideas that take hold in my head as I paint. A painting is finished when the narrative is complete & I understand the message it contains. Each painting is part of the visual journal of my quest. I think of them as talismans, imbued with the power & meaning of their marks. Each one contains a lesson, message or map from my unconscious, an opportunity to grow in my understanding of myself & the world.
