This new body of work is the manifestation of what happens when art and life collide and we let it take us where it will, even if it's far outside our comfort zone.
I'm a British artist living and working in Minnesota, USA since 2006. There’s something about packing up your life that jolts you in to taking a fresh look at your life.
It was in that change that I decided to live as a creative rather than just do creative things now and again.
I don't believe we can separate art from life...
During Covid lockdown I retreated to my studio to create. I stopped. I got still. I listened to what my own soul was feeling and trying to say. And I discovered I needed to be like a child and simply play.
I started to play with paint with no expectations or judgements. And before I recognized what had happened, a whole new body of expressive abstract art work was created. And when that happens, it’s time to share!
I look for all kinds of objects I can use as tools - twigs, leaves or string. It maintains childlike wonder and creativity. Unexpected outcomes open up and an adventure begins each time I come to the canvas.
My paintings are a response to the world around me and of simply living in the world at a particular moment in time.
Our emotions leak out one way or another; I like them to leak out creatively whenever possible!
I think many people are disconnected from their emotions and unaware of what they are really feeling.
I want to help them connect and then be able to process, through my paintings or through my thereuptic art workshops and retreats.
this intuitive, expressive art is occurring naturally out of my growth as a person and an artist.. . . and I am loving it!
I want you to have little moments of ‘ooo’ and ‘ah’ when you see details hiding in plain sight and as you realize that there’s more to explore than at first glance. . . which, after all, is a lot like ourselves, isn’t it?
I want you to start on the outside looking in, then find yourself on the inside looking out. To be drawn in first by the simplicity, and then by the complexity.
I hope one of my paintings finds its home with you and that together we can explore living one creative day at a time.
I hope my paintings give you joyful,reflective moments that refresh your soul.
