ARTISTS STATEMENT I love moving paint around a canvas and I am fascinated by colour. The process continually motivates me. My inspiration comes from different sources which are symbolised and are often interwoven in the form of pictorial collage . Primarily my paintings explore, through symbolism, the mysterious spiritual and emotional evolution of personal reality. Ideas are provoked through my personal experiences, emotions , from conversations and reading books, I continually revisit my sources of inspiration such as birds in flight and wings which symbolise almost unlimited freedom , movement through other dimensions and levels of consciousness. Flowers will always inspire me for their beauty, subtlety yet complex simplicity. Life drawing is a continuous study and enjoyment for me. It is important for me that the viewer interprets my paintings (if they need interpreting) from his or her own imagination and personal perspective . For me this completes the painting.
