Mixed media artworks, paintings and work on wood, cloth, canvas or other non-paper surfaces. I often work with paint I mix myself, with pigments I source from nature. Many of my mixed media works are created from found objects, discarded materials like food packaging, offcuts or from natural materials from compost piles, cuttings, prunings or from construction sites.

Connected
Connected Mixed media on canvas This is one of two paintings created this year (2021) in which I used my own palm print as personal expression, as well as a universal symbol for the tactile AND energetic nature of life and 'reality'. Two hands symbolise the connection we have with each other as human beings, while the dashed line depicts our connection with something beyond our physical selves - with the Universe, Source energy, God, or with the Earth, or Gaia. The earthy, firey, colours refer to the latter as our source of life, source of sustenance, and source of... connection.

Feel the energy
Feel the energy Mixed media on canvas This is one of two paintings in which I used my own palm print. I have recently felt a renewed interest in palmistry or palm reading, in which one can see meaning and messages about your life and personality in the shape and lines of one's own hands. This painting is also inspired by the concept of energy healing - through which you would concentrate universal, reiki or healing energy into the palms of your hands - channeling it from Source energy / God / the Universe - to then transfer it to another living being as an act of healing or blessing. To the left of the hand in the painting are rocks - a symbol timeless energy: pebbles, rocks, stones, gems and crystals have grown their energetic nature over thousands and millions of years as matter concentrates and compresses within the particles of each stone.

Follow your Intuition
Follow your Intuition Mixed media on canvas My paintings are often created in layers, and this artwork started off straight away with a seed-like structure, which can now be seen as a 'source of light' in the upper half of the painting, and the roots that grow into the bottom of the painting. For me listening to my intuition means to follow my inclinations to spend time in the ocean, forests, and mountains. It means listening to my heart, following my bliss, and rooting deeper into who I am - shedding the preconceptions, identities and stereotypes that I've been abiding by. This rooting or grounding into who I am is then an expression of what I perceive as reality. Reality for me is not merely what we see, but it's what we feel, sense, think, perceive, experience and it all forms part of a world of absolute MAGIC and beauty, even though it can so often feel or look like the opposite is true.

Reaching
Reaching Mixed media on canvas A quite symbolic and stylized painting 'Reaching' is aimed at evoking a feeling of connection but also of striving for more connection.  I initialy wanted to title the artwork as 'reaching for the unseen', but wanted to keep it more open-ended or universal, since some people are reaching for more joy, reaching for meaning, reaching for higher understanding, or other concepts and goals... The symbols or shapes around the hand were intuitively painted, and the painting were created in layers of colour, textures and shapes, which include the rain and leaf shapes in the background that emphasize the importance of our interconnection with the natural environment for our happiness and growth.
