Through an investigation of form and interplay of dark & light, I make reference to the dichotomies of randomness and chaos, vs. balance and renewal. Shapes, quirky brushstrokes, and contrasting colours become unintended characters in loose enigmatic narratives, woven via layers of paint. I approach the act of painting with a barrage of material on canvas, then revisit the work at a later time to refine with a more controlled technique. I aim to capture the immediacy of expression resulting in unexpected subject matter. Growing up amidst a forest, in a house of glass walls and contemporary art, has provided the inspiration and sets the tone for my work.
