The studio is a place that enables me to ponder, explore and get on with the process of painting and the stuff of making art. Based in South Pambula the space has been workable since 2004 having placed in a bathroom, windows, doors and the concrete floor it is now an environment that is constantly evolving to accommodate my needs.
My mixed media works can be described as having a unique richness in texture through the use of inventive painting techniques that include collage, patina effects and surface relief. The works that I make reveal personal glimpses into a landscape that is layered both physically and metaphorically.
‘Over the past few years my work has been about the landscape of place. To me the most important aspect of being an artist is to be authentic through your art. To be able to create a narrative about the places I inhabit is an essential part of this
process – be that painting, drawing, textiles, assemblages, photographs and most recently video.’
