This is my latest painting in the journeys collection. Titled ‘Decisions’. Because sometimes decisions are hard to make. As I paint I’m in a constant state of making decisions. This one I was asking myself – Is it too busy? Are there too many colours?
Sometimes the questions in my mind threaten to pull me off track. But I made my decisions and here’s the result! What do you think? Did I make good decisions?
My philosophy is there are no right or wrong decisions – only different ones. Of course they have different consequences but it’s how we reframe them that’s important. And the main thing is to choose and follow through with confidence. Because the worst decision? No decision…
‘JOURNEYS’ is a luminous maze of joyful colours that brings energy and impact to a space. Born out of a desire to paint through a period where I couldn’t travel, I took myself on a journey through exploring colour and shape in a never-ending journey on the canvas. I enjoy to explore new places, or embracing the space in which I find myself. Of course during lockdowns my space was limited and my daily walks would fill me with inspiration, which I would take home and translate onto the canvas. These pieces are inspired by the changing seasons and vibrant colours where I live and experience daily.
The artistic process to create these geometric abstracts, is a balance of constraint and freedom. Intuition and consideration. All hand-drawn, no rulers, no masking tape. An exploration of colour and form. I enjoy combining seemingly random colours, shapes and angles to create an image that replicates the ‘beautiful chaos’ of nature. Using multicolours, acrylic on canvas mostly, I let the painting unfold – allowing the next colour to appear, trusting it will fill the right space. Resulting in a harmonious composition comprising a pleasing series of lines, shapes and angles that fit together to take your eye on your own uplifting journey that never ends, encouraging your eye to move around the connecting shapes.
