I find the freedom in a child’s style of painting inspires my thoughts as an artist.
The way a child thinks about the structure or the process with a no fuss approach towards their planning and the innocence of how they see the world is so refreshing.
These thoughts are how I prepare myself for the imaginative and playfulness within my paintings. Painting is a form of relaxation with no room for stress to fill. The music goes on in the studio and the pallet knife begins working to the beat of the sounds surrounding me.
Colour and form takes place within my head as visions then multiply ten fold and layer upon layer take their position. It takes time and sometimes days for my paintings to take the form that I am pleased. Until the final coat and flick of the wrist working the pallet knife am I satisfied with the result.
