One eye sees, the other feels (Paul Klee)
As an expressive painter, words, ideas and emotions are what inspire me. ‘Seeing words’ is a type of synaesthesia which offers an additional dimension to my experience of the world. Imagery is common to both art and literature.
Working in oils, acrylics and mixed media, collage forms an integral part of the process and the torn paper allows me to convey what I see and what I feel in the moment.
Noticing recently that my compositions contain a strong sense of movement, I have used animation to enhance this effect to create a series of moving paintings. These will be sold as one-off stand-alone pieces.
One ultimate hope is to use my work to move people both figuratively and literally, offering shared experiences and emotions as a form of therapy through art.
