Since childhood,I’ve always been fascinated with the rich and raw beauty within the landscape and I consider how this connection resonates outwards through my life. During a recent trip around Australia, I created paintings and sketches in response to vast locations. Now in the studio, I respond figuratively and lyrically using mix mediums and earthy colours to explore human connection, relationships and aerial views of the land. My work acts as an internal reflection of the landscape, not by representing the land but illustrating the experience. The works act as a record of the dialogue between myself and the world around me in response to connection between people and the land. Abstracted and instinctual, the layered compositions provoke a sense of freedom of the untamed natural world and an uncontrollable curiosity of life.
