January 2021 I founded with 4 other artists the studio 'Kunstglück' in Suitbertus str, 95, Düsseldorf, Bilk.
I was born in England but have lived for the past 31 years in Düsseldorf. After moving to Düsseldorf I began painting much more than in UK. My painting is experimental and intuitive. Colours and the actual act of painting itself inspire me. Normally I have no plan when I begin. The paintings develop organically. I create depth and interest with the paint by adding several layers, removing and adding again and responding. Occasionally I include some collage elements. Although the paintings are abstract a lot of them are inspired by nature and develop into landscapes. It feels like I channel the places I've seen which are stored in the depths of my mind. Perhaps my viewers have been there too and recognise the place. My intention is to evoke a connection. I'd like my viewers to really feel connected when they look. To get in touch with the emotions or thoughts that are stimulated by my work.
