I'm exploring mark making and challenging my understanding of my chosen materials. As my art practice develops, I’m more willing to take risks and let the materials guide me, detaching from the outcome and allowing my intuition to lead the way. This has resulted in some exciting discoveries both in my artistic preferences and about myself. I feel I’m at a turning point with my art now, having gained a solid understanding of the underpinning principles, and I’m ready to take bigger risks and push myself further with the range of materials I’m drawn to. Much of my current work has been inspired by Cornwall, the county in which I grew up and regularly return to. I’ve always preferred it out of season, with the wildness of the coast and the bleakness of the moors. My recent paintings have attempted to capture the emotions such scenes evoked in me, the overall appearance of turmoil and darkness, yet when you look closer there is such beauty and detail to be found.
