I am an artist intrigued by “dynamism”. This is the quality of the movement or the mark-making. All of my work pushes this dynamic boundary. Sometimes it’s through quick sketches on paper and other times large oil paintings that take concentration and lengthy time frames.  The work is always produced in relation to my body in space/time and as such is a constantly shifting dynamic between mind, hand, body,  eyes and various material supports. Sketches inform paintings which inform rituals that influence imagery and so the cycle ebbs and flows. It is all part of a continuous dialogue within my practice. My affordable art range speaks to this dialogue. These works are often experimental and the preamble to the larger concepts. Other times they extend the original concept allowing for further iterations and multiple perspectives. Either way, they facilitate thinking around art-making. They exist as self-conscious reflections on practice and pace.
Touchworks are paintings on glass developed as physical and emotional check-ins. They have become part of a painting ritual, which restricts the paintbrush and only allows for skin contact on the surface. This ritual is performed once a week on a Monday. These works remind me to be present both as a painter and as a person because they are immediate. That is, there is little indulgence with regards to my current emotional state and even less in terms of the image. I love how these artworks are reactive. 
“They help me to orientate where my body and mind are and how I am feeling in a particular moment”

“Creativity is about finding your way; the way that feels the most comfortable. The way that lets you re-organise things so that you might understand better and maybe even help others understand better too.”

Artists are drawn together on this platform to share their ways of making; of seeing. We like to engage one another on this and if you’d like to follow the journey and explore our fascinating world of imagination and intention, for now you can follow us on Instagram, and in future, we hope this initiative will grow into something much larger.
