For some time now I have been pursuing freedom in my work. I have found that my best work is made when I am ‘in the zone’ having fully let go of any inhibitions, preconceived ideas and expectations, taking risks to push the boundaries of my practice further. Music is crucial in taking me to a place of freedom where I create out of intuition rather than logic. Intuitive brushstrokes, sgraffito and ceramic pencil mark making relate to the long walks on Red Hill over the lockdown season we have recently come out of. During my walks I began picking up and photographing leaves in their various shapes and stages of decay, it soon became a leaf obsession. In my work I enjoy abstracting both the distant view as well as the details such as leaves.
