Art is the part of me that makes sense as I navigate my world. It is ‘the journey’ through which I explore, share and seek to inspire through narrative layered imagery and words that emerge spontaneously through layered exploration. Narrative journeys ask us to open and look deeper at the moments around and within each of us. This breathing in, re-interpreting and re-forming through art and the release of the viewers gaze is the energy that allows. I am a seeker and my eye never ceases as I search for meaning that calls me to respond. The archetypal feminine is central to the imagery. I am inspired by history and the images of women it portrays. The feminine mystique is layered and complex and provides an infinite amount of possibilities to explore possible worlds and the stories they hold.
My art is about connection. The paintings wrap around the sides of the canvas and move beyond the surface of the canvas.
Currently (2013) I am exploring acrylic painting and mixed media collage on canvas. The thematic focus is on female figures within a landscape. A variety of layered effects are developed within the finished canvas pieces. Through exploration around the feminine mystique I explore inter layered symbolic imagery and emotions opening to a depth of possibilities.
My work is currently in private collections in Australia and overseas.
