From the Artist:
‘I am an abstract painter who enjoys working with acrylics. I love using bright colours and various textures in my work. I am always excited to discover the path that a painting will take as I explore the synergy of vibrant colours and textures. I like to work by letting the artwork talk to me as I concentrate on developing the parts of a painting I like. A juxtaposition of colours, an interesting texture, some wide expressive strokes can begin the creative process. I like to experiment with different techniques, materials and colours. I enjoy the experimental part of the process which is why the freedom of abstract is my favoured medium. I use my garden for inspiration. Nature renews my creative spirit and I enjoy painting artworks with an abstract botanical element to them. I believe that each painting has an energy that it brings to the space it occupies. Tranquility and celebration are two emotional states I often paint in. I believe that energy transfers to the canvas. Painting is the most joyful activity I can imagine and I am thrilled to think I can share that feeling through my paintings.
