I came into this world loving to draw. As I child I would sit in the backyard for hours, shading and sketching with pencils pictures of flowers, trees, horses and animals… When “art” called to me again a number of years ago I went through an interesting process where I had to learn to be able to “colour outside of the lines” and this has freed me from my old belief that art had to be perfect.
I am self taught, and I love to lose myself in the passion of creativity and just allow the natural flow of energy to move through myself and on to the canvas. I never draw or sketch first, and just dip my brush in the paint and allow the energy, colours, and form to unfold in whatever they choose. As strange as it may sound, I actually “become” the painting… I feel and know what needs to come through next in my works.
I have stopped titling my pieces as I want whoever is viewing my art to have an experience that is solely their own; to feel the energy without being biased by the words of a title or description as I feel that seeing and feeling a piece of art is an individual and personal experience that should not be influenced by myself or my words. Everyone who looks at a painting sees it from a different perspective and in that way they “receive” exactly what they need to from each art piece that they peruse.
