Medium: acrylic on canvas
My work is a heartfelt response to the environment around me. I am continually drawn to the natural world; the oceans, forests, landscape and plants. I like the complexity of layers and mark-making, and so strive to create interesting, suggestive surfaces that reflect this interconnectedness. I have been influenced by the exploration of natural pattern, colour, collage and stitch, including Australian Indigenous stories and marks. My work evolves through process rather than planning, where I explore mixed media, paint and stitch, allowing the mediums and tools to inform my process. My intent is to create artwork that evokes beauty in colour and marks, so the viewer may experience my connection to the natural world.
