I am a "Scatterling of Africa”. Forever inspired by my birthplace South Africa, I have found 'home' in many places on five different continents. After many years in Australia, I am for now living with my family in Hong Kong. I paint with watercolour because it celebrates so much of what I value about life: the new and the old and the perfectly imperfect. A celebration of simplicity. Of unpredictability and the invitation to serendipity. As I explore these themes, my works move between abstraction and figuration.
My technique involves a constant flow of water. Layers of colour are applied and then washed away again. A pure addiction to mark making and getting lost in this process allows me to relinquish control, which invites the merging of shapes and paint in unique and unpredictable ways.
