I work with mixed media on paper. I mix watercolour, acrylic and ink to experiment with different consistencies, colour potency and pigment to create paintings that explore deconstructed landscapes and organic forms. My work is intuitive. I use my instinct and my body to move, and drag the paint around. I use chalk pastel, which is sensitive to pressure; it breaks; it smudges - it has a life of its own. It’s not easily controlled, which leaves room for spontaneity and experimentation in a different way from paint. In my work I consider language, and how texture and colour are a communicative tool. I am interested in what I can do with paint when it is free from the constraints of a premeditated composition, in the same way that words operate in free form.
