Since COVID entered our lives, I’ve felt trepidation about our future in the world. There’s been so much negativity, I’ve needed to find my own personal antidote to these negative emotions I’ve been experiencing; I’ve been looking for joy both internally and within my environment. As a result, my paintings have become more figurative, playful and whimsical.
As an avid reader, I have always loved stories of creation; whether they be Greek, Roman, Dreamtime, or biblical. My latest series "Brouhaha" focusses on an imagined land of gods, creatures, and machines that populate a colourful, and dynamic landscape. The creatures appear across several works as protagonists and witnesses, as multiple characters might be woven across a storyline.
