Artist Statement

alice1

Many things inspire me but I am particularly drawn towards creating works that explore what could be defined as the mysterious, the enchanted and the divine. This can evolve intuitively or sometimes poems, myths and stories or even the current news of our times is relevant content for my work. Writing and illustrating my own stories and poems forms a significant part of my practice. 

 I feel my work is set in the genre of symbolism, anarchy and fantasy. Artists that have inspired me are George Moreau, Hilma af Klint, Edvard Munch, Odilon Redon and Bosch.

I enjoy the theosophist approach to art. I am seeking a space, a calm sanctuary but also always being aware of  the social context of my approach, engaged with the upheaval and inequalities that face our times.

My work, I feel is free, intuitive, spiritual and at times expressionist.

I use a variety of mediums to create my art. I particularly enjoy the use of oil, acrylic and inks on paper or canvas. I sometimes use raw unprimed fabrics to paint on, enjoying the immersive feel and sensuality of unconstrained free flowing materials.

I am passionate about creating. I wish my art to be enjoyable for people to collect and own, artwork that someone can appreciate in their home or workplace but  I also create to solely distribute, publish and exhibit. This approach to my art lends itself to a more performative and conceptual approach within my practice. You can find out more about my work here on my website.
