WHAT ARE SOME OF THE IDEAS THAT YOU EXPLORE IN YOUR WORK?
My local landscape is a constant inspiration. By immersing myself in it and taking the time to slow down and focusing on my senses, I hear the birds, observe the kangaroos, see and hear the wind in the trees. I love the changing weather, seasons and different times of day and the effects of these times on light. It all feeds into my creative process when I'm in the studio.
CAN YOU TELL US A BIT ABOUT THE MEDIUMS THAT YOU HAVE CHOSEN TO WORK WITH? WHAT CAN AUDIENCES EXPECT FROM THE ARTWORKS PRESENTED?
The more time I spend in nature, the more it affects my everyday and artistic practice. Winter came early this year and it definitely influenced my colour palette. The paintings in Crossing Paths are more subdued and moody than my previous exhibitions, with a real winter feel to them. By utilising a darker palette and metallics, which I have recently been experimenting with, it helps to reflect this winter vibe as well.
NOW THAT YOU HAVE LAUNCHED YOUR FIFTH SOLO EXHIBITION IN 'CROSSING PATHS', WHAT IS NEXT FOR YOU?
I have been focused on this exhibition for the better part of a yea, so now it is launched I am excited to explore new environments, gain some fresh inspiration, and work on my next body of work.
