I've always been drawn to symmetry and pattern and first started to explore the structure of geometry and proportion in my last year at art school..
Part of my childhood was spent in East Africa and the rest on the edge of Dartmoor in South West England. Africa gave me colour pattern and heat.and Dartmoor mood mist and water.
I use raw pigments and pastel for their intensity of colour and more recently photographic imagery to show the detail and texture of plant life.
I started to work with circles as a holistic and universal symbol and found that this simple geometry gave me a solid structure on which to base my exploration of colour.
A visit to India was highly influential and as a result I added the triangle to my set of shapes.. I also discovered the story of Indra's Net which demonstrates a holographic view of consciousness
" In the heaven of Indra there is said to be a network of Pearls so arranged that if you look at one you see all the others reflected in it."
