My paintings are inspired by the purity and nature of the world, and offer the opportunity to love what it has to provide and love it with confidence. I use the figure - both beautiful and fierce - to suggest the lovability of human beings, even with our messy beginnings. I use glass rather than canvas as it is a metaphor for two sides of human development: how we are created and how we change. The watered down acrylic paint, guided loosely across the surface of the glass, forms the figure depicting; an unconscious freedom it deserves to own. An unconscious freedom we deserve to own.
