My colourful expressive abstract paintings are inspired by treasured memories and mindful moments; half-remembered dreams; beautiful patterns found in nature; and by people and places. Lively brushstrokes and textures tell a story, share and evoke emotions, and showcase the effect of light on colour, line and shape in all my work. I use my love of colour to share the mood, atmosphere and emotion that I feel for the subject. Above all, I find great joy in the creation of every painting and seek to capture that creative energy as I work so that the results bring joy to people's lives and nourish their souls. My work is mostly in acrylics, oils or mixed media. I love to experiment with new ideas, which may lead to changes to my practice.
