I paint large scale abstracts that range from colourful and bold, to elegant monochromes. Movement and light play a big role in how the artworks can appear to change as you move through a room.

I love to paint large abstracts with beautiful, intricate details. I started to pursue art a few years ago as a way of escaping the chaos that was going on in my life at the time. I unconsciously gravitated towards controlling the chaos in my process, and kept making the process more and more time consuming to give my brain longer breaks. Even though that phase of life has passed, I still love to get lost for an entire day in gorgeous colours and hypnotic movement. I truly adore the process of these artworks. I use a tremendous amount of paint that I pour onto the canvas. It is fast, slow, messy, but also needs to be structured and precise. I am either pouring, staring intently at slow moving paint, or running around the table trying to control the chaos. Making a mess in my studio, tossing paint around without caring if it lands on the floor, or streaks down the walls gives me a sense of freedom and rebellion. If you step into my studio you will leave with paint on you!
The different paint consistencies and timing of layers I use are to produce details that change in varying lights. Gravity and angles are used to create fracturing and movement, resulting In gorgeous details. I love how the colours change and the images can appear reversed when reflecting the glow from a candle, or sunlight shining through a window.
Movement and light are the keys to seeing something new and beautiful every time.
