In her own words
I explore moments of beauty, wonder and awe in the coastal landscape. In this new Painting the ocean is meditation of the rising and receding tides and the elusive nature of a subject in motion. Immersed in my studio, I interpret the sensory aspects of the elements; smells, sounds, feelings, and energy, and infuse my work with their essence. My process is fluid, moving between freedom and control, accident and intention, In this series I work with a muted almost monochromatic palette, using a range of expressive and gestural strokes that celebrates the accidental mark. Whether it’s a large dynamic painting or a small intimate piece, My aim is to resonate with the power and grace of sea to evoke a poetic and deeply meaningful experience for the viewer.
