Colour :: Line :: Pattern
These are the things that inspire me. Pretty general I know, but I find fodder for my art practice from very diverse sources. Architectural elements, decorative styles such as art nouveau, historical documents and natural history illustration, the natural (especially botanical) world, and often just the sheer pure joy of seeing a colour, and mixing and making new ones.
I am inspired by the constant overlapping of nature, science, music; the appearance of patterns in all these. And I find beauty in it.
I like to let the materials find their way, to replicate nature. Follow the accidental line; let it guide you. I paint intuitively, responding to experiences, visual stimuli and feelings.
