VIEW IN MY ROOM
'Within Reach' is a visual description of emotions experienced whilst producing the piece. Inspired by my subconscious it is a snapshot of visual time, like a page from a diary. I started with a blank canvas and allowed my inner emotions to direct the painting. I hope the piece will give a diverse range of thoughts and feelings for the viewer and I do not want them to be directed so literally, the most important element is that it stirs their emotions on viewing. My paintings are always started from the physical and mental need to want to do them. They are in a way a visual landscape of my inner thoughts and feelings. Sometimes more abstract approaches are needed, when at other times a more representation depiction is more appropriate.

I draw my inspiration from the constant possibilities of painting and the challenge of its unpredictable nature in conveying a subject. I am most interested in the process of painting and the expression it provides, translating a depth of feeling that is both personal but also shared with the viewer. Psychotherapy has directly influenced recent work and renewed my interest in abstract expressionism with the freedom of colour, line and allowing the subconscious and memory to guide my work. My current work explores the raw emotions I have experienced through personal challenges including the corrosive effects of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), infertility and a recent incurable auto-immune disease diagnosis. Whilst these experiences are highly personal, I believe that by exploring those emotions in my work I am creating a voice where one might normally be at risk of being suppressed and hidden.
