- Mixed Media,
Using the basic art elements of colour, design and texture I create inventive contemporary paintings in mixed media.
An innate love of experimenting with different textures and materials has taken me down a less conventional path to making art.
My inspiration comes from life experiences, memories, music, literature and elements of the natural world.
Paintings are constructed over a textured ground with multiple layers of thin and thick Acrylic paint that is washed, glazed, scrubbed, dripped and spattered using brushes, spatulas, knives, sponges or fingers. Textures are added using pastes, gels, marble dust, metal foils, variouse papers and collected natural or man made objects.
It is an instinctive and exiting processs; the possibilities are virtually endless.
Every painting is a personal journey of contemplation and discovery.
