I have always been fascinated by detailed and delicate things; handmade treasures in museums, the ageing skin on human hands, the fine petals on flowers.
My paintings are a self-reflective journey and follow the theme of fragility, through the subjects that inspire me most- nature and people.
The fragility of humanity- people- and nature is surpassed. It is often only when we are perceived as broken or gone, we acknowledge or reflect on just how fragile we really are. There's a strength, uniqueness and beauty to our fragility, something extremely valuable and treasuring.
Using thin layers of paint on fine surfaces of board or canvas, I aim to depict and emphasise the fragile and delicate nature of my subjects.
I aim to slow the viewer down and reflect on the beauty of both the subjects fragility as well as their own.
My paintings act as a conduit to externalise my own reflections about what it means to be human and our relationship to the natural world.
