Something that has always appealed to me in the art I create, and that I admire, is a sense of time passing suggested by the layering of textures, colours, patterns and shapes. Such work encourages the viewer to stop, really look and absorb the interplay of media and markmaking. Some of my abstract pieces aim to communicate the ebb and flow of the tide and the transformation of a place over time, whilst others are inspired by the abstract patterns and colourings within the surface of a pebble, rock or mineral.
My most recent abstracts are inspired by the 'linescapes' to be found in the interior markings of agates.
These paintings are worked on paper in watercolour and ink and most recently with earth and mineral pigments.
