Artist Statement

My recent body of work is inspired by my walks in the Waitakere Ranges, the autumn colours, the rainy days, the movement of the leaves, the wind on my face and how the walk makes me feel afterwards. In the last six months I have been drawn to explore movement in my paintings, which has emerged both from noticing what I enjoy in nature but also my love of dancing, something that always gets the happy endorphins going; hence the many works, where pink is present. 

I enjoy the unexpectedness of beauty that can emerge from a quick movement, when things are not perfect; I have a hard time with a straight line. 

The process of the last layers, adding, taking away, feels like solving a problem, the complexity, the struggle which occurs, can feel devastating, but when the painting feels resolved, it’s like a wave of relief, a feeling of falling in love making me want to do it all over again.
