Artist Statement

I make paintings, spells & rituals. My paintings seem almost, but not quite, geometric; they seem almost, but not quite, abstract. They are full of wobbly lines, imperfect triangles and pregnant rounds. My work continues enquiries into the mysteries of the soul which began as a child, for whom hours spent contemplating the inner world and observing the outer world came together in drawings, paintings and imaginings. I come to painting and to the spiritual aware of the maleness of their histories. Respecting these traditions yet seeking more, I place myself beside them; held womb-like within feminist/feminine shapes, patterns and ways of knowing.

The realm of the spiritual remains core to my work; expanded to include a diverse range of spiritual traditions from around the world. Drawing on transformative process such as those described in the i-ching and The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, I often make work in series; hinting at patterns of transformation from one state to another; from winter’s death to February’s hope tinged yellow.

My current paintings, spells & rituals follow the eight solar festivals and 13 lunar months of the ancient Celts.

If you would like to ask any questions about my work, I should love to hear from you.
