About my practice
"Paint is often my go to medium for when I want to both work things out and switch off from 'real life, I'm not choosey about which type of paint, just whatever is in reach"
"After years of push and pull with paint and art making in general it was one afternoon on a rainy September afternoon that I began to accept the tension, the ebb and flow; that day I made a pact with myself to stop feeling so impatient to have all the answers in my art practice (and in my life in general actually).
I realised that it was not necessary for it all to come to me easily, like it seemingly did for so many others. Then I realised that everyone probably feels this way at one time or another and that it is okay!
There is no 'finished', just a process and the privileged opportunity to show up in my studio and be grateful that I get to play, something which not many allow themselves the chance to do once 'grown up’."
"The sudden surge of ideas that flowed from me with my eldest child had felt at times overwhelming and frustrating.
As a new Mother I had ideas for art projects I had no idea how to make, for business ventures that seemed impossible to ever be able to realise and social projects that would involve me needing to actually dress myself, leave the house and manage an actual conversation with other adults… none of these things felt in any way achievable at first and it really got me down.
I now have in place some strategies that serve me well though and the tendency to feel out of control is better managed (most the time) now."
