Working in series, the inspiration for my art comes from the organic textures, colours, shapes and movement found in our physical world. My process is, by absorbing these elements, I then allow the subconscious to go free, transforming them - in an impressionistic or abstract fashion - into a piece of art. The general rule for my pieces is 'Spirit in Form' - trying to capture the feel, energy or essence of the form rather then duplicating it.
I work in acrylic paint and molding paste (for textures) on canvas or wood as well as relief sculpture in plaster or cement.
I the tree series, ashes from dead tree branches were sometimes used as part of the texture.
In the tire track series, I was inspired by the rhythmic pattern of a tire's thread in the earth - a moment of time when someone passes leaving an ephemeral mark - and have incorporated it into these pieces.
