"I want my work to be expressive, spontaneous and experimental, even though I may start with a realistic picture in my mind. I love using a variety of materials and media: paint, inks, crayons & collage papers. My first marks are quite accidental brush strokes without conscious thinking or planning in the realm of the sub- conscious mark making. The ongoing dialogue with the painting begins once I start to overlay the various mixed media, then the composition unfolds. I like using bold contrasting colours and I experiment with textures hoping to pull the viewer into the emotion of the painting through movement, rhythm and colour. The painting is finished when it radiates energy and intensity. My paintings are of my inner psyche and come to me like dreams."
The exhibition is open until December 17.
